'Dancing With the Stars' -- Can an Injured Star Make a Comeback? (VIDEO)

'Dancing With the Stars' -- Can an Injured Star Make a Comeback?We had comebacks galore on tonight's 'Dancing With the Stars' (Mon., 8PM ET on ABC). But would a player who was battling injures make it all the way back?

[Warning: Spoiler alert.]

Early this season, Jennifer Grey was the 'DWTS' front runner. Then, the actress was derailed by nagging physical problems. She suffered a pinched nerve in her foot, and reactivated an old neck injury. Jennifer has a metal plate in her neck, dating back to a 1987 car accident involving her then-boyfriend Matthew Broderick. She has been warned that competing on the show could cause further damage.

Last week, Grey found herself in the bottom two, facing elimination along with Audrina Patridge. The actress spent much of this week's rehearsal time weeping in frustration. Though Jennifer looks many years younger, she's actually 50 years old. And she's worried that her body can't handle the stress of dancing anymore.

For the 200th episode of the series, the theme was "comebacks." The show brought back old performers as guest judges -- and the current players had to recreate their routines. Grey and Derek Hough were the last to dance. As luck would have it, they got Drew Lachey's tango routine from season two. Lachey is a former champ; he was named the best 'DWTS' dancer ever in a recent poll.

Jennifer and Derek couldn't have landed a more difficult assignment. Would the actress return to form? Or would she be facing elimination once again?
