"I feel fine physically," said the 33-year-old native of Saint Gallen.
"As far as my return is concerned, we have targeted the world championships which start (in Sweden) on February 18th, but there's still a long way to go before that point."
The Swiss star fell face-first after his second jump of 136 metres, his legs spread into a splits and his head slammed into the ice at the Four Hills event in Bischofshofen.
Ammann is no stranger to injury — he was seriously hurt in a fall at Willingen in 2002 but went on to claim an Olympic double a month later at Salt Lake City.
