Notre Dame senior forward Bonzie Colson is taking some positive steps in his recovery from a fracture in his left foot.

Colson, an All-American candidate, posted a video on Twitter on Wednesday as he has started running on a zero gravity treadmill. As Notre Dame men’s basketball SID Alan Wasielewski noted, the zero gravity treadmill limits the amount of weight supported by the lower body.

While Colson is still scheduled to be out for the next few weeks, this is a great sign as he attempts to return for the end of his college basketball career. When Colson’s injury was initially announced on Jan. 2, he was supposed to miss up to eight weeks with the injury.

About six weeks after the injury, Colson is on his feet, and working slowly, as he continues the healing and recovery process. It’s hard to say where things will go for Colson from here, but the Irish are optimistic that Colson might return for the final week of the regular season.
