MTV host T.J. Lavin is showing some signs of improvement following the bike accident that left him in a coma, ESPN reports.

The 33-year-old pro BMX rider was in critical condition after a crash Thursday during the Dew Tour Championships. Lavin sustained brain bleeding, a broken wrist, and an orbital fracture in his eye.

Chris Aday, Lavin's business partner, told MTV News that Lavin also has a slight fever and pneumonia. Aday said an MRI showed no further brain damage for the Real World/Road Rules Challenge host.

"It's gonna be a long recovery for him," Aday added.
