Jason Mesnick dumped Melissa Rycroft after proposing to her on "The Bachelor" -- but will the former Dallas Cowboy's cheerleader rebound on the dance floor?

According to People magazine, that's true! The magazine reports that the 25-year-old sales rep -- who is considered a fan favorite from the hit reality show -- will compete in the place of television personality Nancy O'Dell, who had to withdraw from the competition due to a knee injury.

Hugh Hefner's former "Girl Next Door" Holly Madison is also rumored to be taking the spot of singer Jewel, who also had to step off of the dance floor due to an injury.

If the rumors are true, Melissa only has days to rehearse before shaking it on Monday's season premiere of "Dancing with the Stars." ABC declined to comment on the reports.
