'makes great progress?' is the definition.
The answer and definition can be both to do with motion as well as being verbs in their -s form.
Maybe you can see a link between them that I don't see?

'gone crazy about eliot?' is the wordplay.
'crazy' indicates an anagram.
'about' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'eliot?' becomes 'ts' (TS Eliot).
'gone' anagrammed gives 'geon'.
'geon' going around 'ts' is 'GETS ON'.
