The England international midfielder’s family and friends were given the good news as he appeared to be making progress after emergency surgery.
Hull City’s Mason, 25, suffered a fractured skull and bleeding on the brain in a sickening clash of heads with Chelsea’s Gary Cahill at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
Mason was given oxygen as he was treated on the pitch for nine minutes before being rushed to St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington.
His fiancee Rachel Peters was at his bedside as he recovered from the nightmare injury.
The couple became engaged 10 weeks ago after Mason proposed during a break in Dubai.
Cahill, 31, dashed to the hospital with Chelsea captain John Terry and assistant first team coach Steve Holland shortly after the match which ended in a 2-0 defeat for Hull.
