Paralyzed Rutgers University football player Eric LeGrand has posted two photographs of himself standing during physical therapy.

The photos appeared Wednesday on LeGrand's Twitter account. LeGrand tweeted that he's "standing up little by little" and "standing tall, we can't fall."

His mother is with him in the photos.

LeGrand was paralyzed from the neck down while making a tackle on a kickoff return against Army on Oct. 16 at New Meadowlands Stadium.

The 20-year-old has said he believes he will walk again.
