After a cyst in his leg caused him to miss four days of rehearsal, Ralph Macchio struggled to even get on the floor this week on Dancing with the Stars.

It showed, as he and Karina Smirnoff earned the lowest scores of the night.

The 49-year-old actor and his partner scored a 25 out of 30 on their first dance and a 21 out of 30 in the “instant dance,” which they barely rehearsed.

“For someone who’s had limited time to practice, you did a great job,” Len Goodman said. “The thing is, it lacked polish. You only get polish with time.”

Carrie Ann Inaba added: “It’s the hardest thing to dance when you’re in pain.” That it is. But will America take that into account and save Ralph?
