This season’s ‘Dancing With The Stars’ contenders have been announced, but one name should have also been on the list if not for an old injury – Ryan O’Neal’s.

O’Neal was all set to go on ‘Dancing’, in fact he even attended a rehearsal for the show, but his spirit may be willing, but his knee is weak.

According to a rep who spoke with ‘Access’, “He had a knee replacement done a few months ago, and after the first rehearsal he realized that it wasn’t 100% yet, He hopes to be able to do the show next season.”

Ryan’s replacement, designer and Oprah Winfrey Network star — Carson Kressley.
