Every step of progress for Eric LeGrand is an inspirational sign of hope.
LeGrand was paralyzed when he was at Rutgers making a tackle in 2010. His upbeat and positive attitude has made him a hero to many, and we all welcome any and all of the positive news from his recovery.
When LeGrand posted video of him moving his thumb on Facebook late last week, the 17-second video got more than 10,000 "likes."
I had a bunch of my fingers twitching today but only had the video of my thumb #onlyamatteroftime

LeGrand can be heard at the end of the video giving a loud, "Yeah, buddy!" after his thumb moves. Hopefully there's more videos from him coming soon.
