Comedian Tracy Morgan's health was upgraded to fair condition on Monday as he continued to show signs of improvement after being badly injured in a highway crash earlier this month, a publicist for the star said.

Morgan, 45, was admitted to a New Jersey hospital in critical condition after a multivehicle highway crash on June 7. Publicist Lewis Kay said "his personality is certainly starting to come back."

The former "Saturday Night Live" comedian suffered injuries including a broken leg, nose and ribs in the crash on the New Jersey Turnpike that killed fellow comedian James "Jimmy Mack" McNair.
