exercise while in a cam boot?

Are there any exercises that can be done safely while waiting for a Jones bone fracture to heal? Can one light weights for upper body strength while in a sitting position, safely? Any others if not that? Thanks.

When I had a Jones type of 5th metatarsal fracture, I also did upper body workouts and leg lifts and on my unaffected leg, I did toe/calf raises.
