Former Alabama safety Eddie Jackson appears to be making steady progress in his recovery from the broken leg he suffered last season.

In two recent videos shared on Twitter – one on Tuesday and another Wednesday – Jackson shows he’s able to run again without any apparent limitations as he prepares for the upcoming NFL draft.

Jackson also posted an optimistic tweet on Wednesday afternoon, presumably at least somewhat related to football.

Jackson had not previously shared any workout videos since suffering the injury in late October in a win against Texas A&M. The injury was never considered career threatening, though he did also tear an ACL during spring practice in 2014.

Jackson is one of 10 Alabama players who has been invited to participate in the NFL Scouting Combine from Feb. 28-March 26 in Indianapolis. He is projected to be a third-round pick in the draft.

In four seasons with the Crimson Tide, Jackson had 126 tackles, 10 interceptions, 12 passes defended, two forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries and five touchdowns (three interception returns, two punt returns).
