The comedian is still visibly recovering from a bad car accident on June 7

Walking with the help of a walker and an assistant, Tracy Morgan nonetheless showed signs of positivity, throwing a big smile and the peace sign to reporters camped out in front of his house as he got into a car.

In a video captured outside Morgan’s home on Monday, the comedian seems to struggle with walking and getting into his vehicle, but then gives spectators a sign that he’s in good spirits. When he drives past the applauding throng of supporters, he confirms, “I’m okay. I feel strong. I love you, thank you so much.”
