Alison Sweeney Heads to Mercy

It seems like one of daytime's hardest working women will be adding yet another gig to her plate. Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello reports that Days of our Lives star and The Biggest Loser host Alison Sweeney will make a guest spot on Mercy in March. According to Ausiello,

 Sweeney will play a bus crash victim who appears to have only minor injuries. However, the docs and nurses soon discover (spoiler alert!) that she has shrapnel in her brain causing her to act out of character.
