Tracy Morgan recently reassured fans that his body is on the mend, and now it seems his spirit is, too. The comedian, who suffered a near-fatal accident in New Jersey on June 7, has been on the slow and steady path to recovery and hasn't lost his sense of humor, according to his pal Neal Brennan.
Appearing on Late Night With Seth Meyers, Brennan said he spoke to Morgan this week. "From what I can tell, he is great," Brennan said. "Physically, I don't know. He said he is going to rehab every day.
"Mentally, he seems all there. Because we were talking, and he was like, 'Neal. I mean, the outpouring of love was unbelievable. I mean, the people that reached out to me: Busta Rhymes, LL Cool J, the President,'" Brennan said. "The fact that Tracy put LL Cool J and Busta Rhymes above the President let's me know that Tracy is back."
Last month, Morgan was spotted outside of his New Jersey home leaning on a walker, but otherwise looking healthy, and thanked fans for their support. He told the paparazzi camped out outside his home that he was "okay" and "feeling strong."
Morgan is suing the Walmart corporation, whose truck hit Morgan's vehicle, causing a six-vehicle collision that left one person dead, for negligence.
