Could former House Majority leader Tom DeLay be sidelined from Dancing With the Stars one week before its premiere?

"Old age is catching up to me. May have a stress fracture in my foot. No worries, it'll take more than that to keep me off the dance floor," the Texas politician -- who is partnered with Cheryl Burke -- posted on Twitter Tuesday.

Show producers implemented a five-hour-per day limit on rehearsals this season after Jewel and Nancy O'Dell had to pull out of the competition last year with injuries. 

DeLay later updated his condition on Twitter: "No stress fracture. It's a pre-stress fracture. I live for another day."

The show's ninth season kicks off Sept. 21 on ABC.
