University sports spokesman Jason Baum tweeted that LeGrand will be attending a comedy performance to support his Believe Fund charity.
In a follow-up phone interview, Baum told NBC New York that LeGrand can now sit up in a wheelchair, and recently made his first return visit to the Rutgers campus to join a team meeting.
"He was in great spirits and he was talking," Baum said.
LeGrand suffered a paralyzing blow to his neck back in October while making a tackle during the Rutgers-Army game.
It is not clear whether LeGrand will speak at Saturday night's on-campus comedy show.
The headliner is Rutgers graduate Bill Bellamy.
Tickets for the event at the Rutgers Athletic Center start at $15 for students, and go up to $50.
