By Christopher Rocchio, 03/23/2009 

Stephen "Steve-O" Glover is reportedly ready to return to Dancing with the Stars.

The former Jackass and Dr. Steve-O star is expected to take the stage with professional partner Lacey Schwimmer during Monday night's live eighth-season performance episode despite the fact that he is still recovering from a back injury.

"Yes, he is expected to perform," a Dancing with the Stars representative told E! News in a Monday afternoon report.

Glover was forced to miss last Monday night's Dancing with the Stars performance show after he injured his back during a dress rehearsal performance that took place a couple of hours before the live broadcast.

The injury occurred when Glover -- who was already competing with pinched nerves and torn muscles he suffered shortly after the eighth-season premiere -- decided to add a front flip to the end of the pair's salsa performance and landed on a microphone pack that had been placed on his lower back. 
 
He was immediately taken to a nearby hospital, where doctors had managed to rule out broken bones but were still conducting additional evaluation as the Monday night broadcast aired.

Two days after Glover had announced that he expected to be able to continue in the ABC competition, Schwimmer told OK! Weekly that Glover was suffering from internal bleeding and had not yet been medically cleared to begin practicing for tonight's .

Given his current condition, Glover and Schwimmer will reportedly be performing a more conservative routine this week.

"They're doing a really cool dance with non-Jackass moves," a source told E! News. "They've learned their lesson."
