Bengals WR Ochocinco doesn’t dance on DWTS Finale; Injured lifting weights

For those of you who missed the Dancing With The Stars conclusion last night on ABC, Chad Ochocinco was in attendance, but unlike the other  season 10 contestants, he did not dance.

All the orignal cast of celebrities were scheduled to dance with their partners during portions of the finale, but Chad watched from a seat in the front row while his partner, Cheryl Burke danced alone.  Host Tom Bergeron noted it was due to an  injury. later reported that Chad had hurt himself lifting weights.

“I can’t dance tonight due to injury, trying to squat 420 without a warm was dumb of me,” Ochocinco wrote on his Twitter account. ”Truthfully I felt with me dancing the past 3 months I would’ve been able to start heavy n work my way down as usual.”

Luckily, Chad should be back in the line-up in time for the June 15th camp.

Meanwhile, on the football field Jerome Simpson is using the opportunity to play the “X” spot in practice, and is making headway in trying to convince the team that he won’t end up as a complete waste of a second round pick.

Also, it looks like the no-huddle might be coming back to the Queen City.  I, for one, missed it last year.  The key will be having the ability to run the no-huddle out of two TE sets in addition to 3 receiver sets to ensure the running game remains a threat.

Oh, and by the way, the Dancing champion was Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger, who if you haven’t noticed is SMOKING HOT:
