Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter ran Monday for the first time since breaking his ankle last October, according to multiple reports.

The 38-year-old veteran ran on a treadmill and participated in baseball drills to begin his third week of workouts.

"I've gotten the OK to do everything," Jeter told reporters. "I haven't been using my legs, so I have to get used to using them."

Jeter underwent surgery to repair his ankle one week after he suffered the injury in the ALCS against the Tigers on Oct. 13. He expects to be ready for Opening Day on April 1.
