According to Tracy Morgan’s lawyer Benedict P. Morelli, the road to recovery has not been an easy one for his 45-year-old comedian client.
After a six-vehicle car crash in June, Morgan suffered several injuries that left him in critical condition. His friend and fellow comic James “Jimmy Mack” McNair was killed in the accident.
Morgan has been seen using a walker, but still relies on a wheelchair to get around. It may be months before he is fully recovered and Morelli explained this week just how hard Morgan has been struggling recently.
We want Tracy Morgan to get better so badly! But after sustaining such serious injuries, we know his road to recovery is a long one.
Today, the 45-year-old funny man made his way out of his doctor’s office and into his car with the help of a walker.
Phew! This is extremely uplifting news!
Our hearts dropped when we learned Tracy Morgan was seriously injured in a fatal car accident over the weekend, but his camp revealed the HIGHlarous comedian is slowly but surely getting better!!
His rep, Lewis Kay, explained:
The Got Your 6 campaign is a Hollywood-backed veteran campaign that just launched American Icons at an even in NYC last night — and the celebs were OUT for it!

Sadly, 30 Rock is coming to an end this Thursday, January 31st.
The best way to cope with losing one of the funniest shows on TV?
Eating a whole pint of ice cream (and crying).
Thankfully, Ben & Jerry's is going to commemorate the show with a new ice cream flavor!
