A rep for Jennings, who has been with the DWTS pros on the Hot Summer Nights tour since its first show on June 16 in Las Vegas, tells Entertainment Tonight that the NFL star will be stepping away from the tour for a few weeks to focus on football.

"Rashad has been loving the tour so far and will be focusing on football for the month of July," the rep explained. "He plans rejoin the tour on August 1."

In the meantime, Morris couldn’t be happier to put on her dancing shoes and rejoin the squad.

"Get ready! I'm back! Can't wait to join the #DWTStour July 9th-30th. Get your tickets now [Dancing ABC]," she captioned a post on Instagram on Tuesday.

Morris had previously expressed interest in joining the tour back in May.

"I would personally love to [do the tour]," she shared. "I'm not against it, and I would really love to just dance on the stage one more time because [Maksim Chmerkovskiy and I] only had two shows where we got to actually dance together, which was really disappointing."
