House Majority Whip Steve Scalise is out of bed and continuing to recover after being shot last month, Rep. Phil Roe, R-Tenn., says.

Roe gave his update on Scalise's condition during an interview with Tennessee television station WJHL.

"I've invited him to the LSU-UT football game in November and hopefully, he'll be well enough then," Roe said of the Louisiana congressman. "He's had a very, very serious injury. (He's) just out of bed. He's not able to eat yet, but he is getting better."

Scalise is currently in a Washington, D.C. hospital after being shot in the hip by a gunman who opened fire at a park in Virginia on June 14 where Republican lawmakers were practicing for a charity baseball game, The Hill noted.

Four others were also wounded in the attack.
