Jason Derulo is facing a new challenge ahead of his big Super Bowl performance — no, not a TikTok challenge … he recently suffered a nasty injury and now he’s walking on a cane.
A Source familiar tells TMZ … the “Wiggle” singer was injured playing basketball 3 weeks ago. Apparently, he was going up for a rebound and wound up landing on someone’s foot … he now has a small break in his foot and a torn ligament to boot.

He was lucky enough to avoid surgery, but he did have stem cells injected, which help speed up recovery time.
As of now … Jason’s going to physical therapy daily and is getting around with the help of a cane.
Of course, this couldn’t be worse timing for Jason. ICYMI, he and The Black Keys were announced as this year’s headliners of the NFL TikTok Tailgate … which is supposed to go down prior to the big game.
Our sources say, although he may not be fully recovered for the performance, he will power through it, come hell or high water.
The show’s in less than 2 weeks, so stay tuned.
