COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - It appears Marcus Lattimore's road to recovery is progressing in such a way that he's now able to run the stadium steps at his old stomping grounds.

A video posted on YouTube by his stepfather shows the NFL rookie pounding his way up the bleachers at Williams-Brice Stadium Monday.

The video titled 'Latt says "what knee surgery"' was posted after he ran the steps during the filming of an Under Armour commercial, according to Vernon Smith, Jr's YouTube post.

The former Gamecock running back was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in the fourth round of the 2013 NFL Draft.

He is recovering from his second major knee surgery in as many years. The latest happening in a 2012 home game against Tennessee.

During an appearance in the Upstate Sunday, he said he won't be ready for training camp this summer, but hopes to join the team on the practice field at some point in the upcoming season.
