After months of recovery from toe surgery, Deion Sanders is no longer in a boot. He posted a video of the injured foot with a sneaker on it to his Instagram page Friday.

"I just think back on how things were a few months ago Lord, and how far you've brought me," Sanders said. "The reason I am so joyed and enthusiastic and so happy is because look, they're just seeing an Under Armor shoe. But you know what I'm seeing? I'm seeing a shoe on a foot that they have no idea what transpired."

Sanders missed three games and was hospitalized nearly a month after surgery. He returned for the Tigers' win against Southern in Baton Rouge on Nov. 13 and coached from a wheelchair before moving to a scooter.

Sanders was coaching on a scooter after his initial surgery in September as well, and at one point was using a motorized bike. Now it appears that he is back on two feet, as the video showed him taking small steps.

"Lord I'm just thankful that I'm actually taking a step and walking it like I talk it," Sanders said.
