Spokesman Lewis Kay said Saturday that the former "Saturday Night Live" and "30 Rock" star will continue his recovery efforts at home with an "aggressive outpatient program."

Morgan suffered a broken leg and broken ribs when the limousine van he was riding in was hit from behind June 7 by a Wal-Mart truck on the New Jersey Turnpike.

The wreck killed 62-year-old comedian James McNair, who went by the name Jimmy Mack. Comedian Ardley Fuqua and another passenger, Jeffrey Millea, were injured.
