Morgan, a survivor of a crash that killed his friend and fellow comedian James McNair, sustained several injuries, including “a broken leg, a broken femur, a broken nose and several broken ribs.” And while Morgan has already had one surgery today on his leg, he is “more responsive today” than he was yesterday — a promising sign.
Still, he’s expected “to remain in the hospital for several weeks.” See the full statement, via a tweet from BuzzFeed’s Alison G. Vingiano, below:
