Comedian Tracy Morgan Monday was upgraded to fair condition, more than a week after he was injured in an accident on the New Jersey Turnpike that injured two others and killed his friend James “Jimmy Mack” McNair.
The 45-year-old funnyman’s rep Lewis Kay said the Saturday Night Live star’s “personality is certainly starting to come back as well” as his body heals from severe injuries to his ribs, and a broken leg, suffered in the June 7 pileup.
