DETROIT (AP) - Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder hasn’t let his torn right Achilles tendon sideline him from Detroit’s auto show.

The Republican governor talked to reporters and toured the North American International Auto Show on Tuesday during press previews. He was driven in a golf cart and walked with crutches as he recovers from the injury that happened while jogging recently during a vacation in Florida.

The torn tendon forced him to cancel a speaking engagement next week at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, but Snyder said attending the auto show was “important.” He started at the Ford exhibit, where he met with CEO Mark Fields and saw the new GT.

Snyder said he wasn’t car shopping, and added that he’s “not in a position to be driving anytime too soon.”
