Broncos linebacker Von Miller and dancing partner Whitney Carson promised an "extra spicy salsa" Monday night, but it wasn't enough to keep them on the show.
Miller was all smiles after their routine to Elvis Presley's "A Little Less Conversation."
But the judges clearly wanted a little more action.
"It's been so much fun. It's all great dancers here. This competition was very, very tough," Miller said after the elimination announcement.
It was a double elimination night. Actress Kim Fields and her partner Sasha Farber were also eliminated.
