Comedian Tracy Morgan is recovering after undergoing a successful kidney transplant earlier this month. The "30 Rock" star, who suffers from diabetes, will spend the holidays recuperating from the surgery, but his health issue will not keep him away from the cameras for too long - he will only miss two episodes of the hit TV sitcom.
His representative tells GossipCop.com, "Tracy is doing well and taking some much needed time to recover after the surgery. He is looking forward to going back to work after the holidays." Rumor has it the writing team will explain his absence by saying his character has some sort of meltdown after a good thing happens to him.
Morgan isn't the only "30 Rock" castmember to need a new kidney - his co-star Grizz Chapman underwent similar surgery earlier this year.
