Tracy Morgan ‘Doing Well’ After Kidney Transplant

This is nothing to laugh about.

E! Online reports that 30 Rock funny-man Tracy Morgan has gone under the knife to receive a kidney transplant. The good news? The 42-year-old comic actor is recovering nicely. The bad news? He’ll be sidelined from his hit sitcom for a bit.

A rep for Morgan says,

“Tracy is doing well and taking some much needed time to recover after the surgery.”

Morgan is expected to miss two episodes of 30 Rock this season due to the surgery, an absence that will be explained away with some “happy news,” a 30 Rock source says.

Interestingly, Morgan’s co-star, Grizz Chapman—who plays a member of the posse for Jordan’s character, Tracy Morgan—also received a kidney transplant this year, after suffering for months with end-stage renal disease.
