Tracy Morgan is ready to get back to work just two days after his Sundance scare. Following his release from Park City Medical Center, the "Saturday Night Live" alum wrote on his Twitter account that he will be reporting to the set of "30 Rock" on Tuesday, January 24.

"Thank U 2 the hospital staff. Back at work 2morrow shooting 30 Rock. Holla at me!" tweeted the 43-year-old comedian on Monday. Just moments earlier, he addressed his trip to the Utah hospital by writing, "Superman ran into a little kryptonite. The high altitude in Utah shook up this kid from Brooklyn."

Morgan was rushed to a hospital in Park City, Utah on Sunday after falling unconscious as he was leaving the Creative Coalition Spotlight Awards, where he was honored. In a statement issued afterward, his publicist Lewis Kay explained that the actor needed medical attention "from a combination of exhaustion and altitude."

Kay additionally slammed rumors that Morgan was consuming alcohol prior to him collapsing. "Any reports of [Morgan] consuming alcohol are 100% false," the rep said. Amy Roberts, a spokeswoman for the hospital, also stated that no drugs or alcohol were found in the actor's system upon medical evaluation.

A 911 call, which was made after Morgan fell unconscious and obtained by TMZ, revealed that the actor had a high fever. The caller said that Morgan has taken antibiotics for an infection in his foot, and that his breathing was "not normal". Asked if Morgan had been drinking, the caller said he's not sure.
