Tracy Morgan Recovering from Kidney Transplant


Apologies for two 30 Rock-related posts in one day, but Entertainment Weekly just reported that Tracy Morgan underwent a kidney transplant a little over a week ago, and as a result will miss taping at least two episodes of the show while he spends time recovering. (The writers will address his absence with a storyline in which Tracy Jordan has “some sort of a meltdown because of a good thing that’s happened to him.”) Morgan was diagnosed with diabetes — which can cause severe damage to the kidneys — back in 1996, but he only recently started to take the disease seriously. He was spotted at Friday night’s Knicks game, which we’ll take as a sign that he’s doing well!
