There's another amazing development in the recovery of Eric LeGrand, the Rutgers football player paralyzed during a game last year.

LeGrand is now standing.

He tweeted a photo with his mom, Karen, next to him.

The tweet says "Standing up little by little in therapy."

He also tweets, "standing tall, we can't fall. Standing upright again."

LeGrand was paralyzed from the neck down while making a tackle on a kickoff return in a Rutgers game against Army last October 16th.
