Tracy Morgan gives thanks, says 'I'm OK'

In one of his first appearances since the tragic June 7 car accident on the New Jersey Turnpike that left him in critical condition, Tracy Morgan spoke out for the first time and appears in good spirits leaving his house in New Jersey.

On Monday, Morgan gave the peace sign and thanked everyone for the outpouring of support he's received since the accident.

"I'm OK," he told photographers simply. "I love you very much. Thank you. I appreciate everything."

The "30 Rock" star, 45, sustained several serious injuries stemming from the accident, including a broken leg, a broken femur, a broken nose and several broken ribs.

Though on Saturday, Morgan's rep confirmed some good news -- he's finally out of rehabilitation.

"Tracy has been released from the rehabilitation center and will continue his recovery efforts at home with an aggressive outpatient program," his rep told ET. "He asked me to pass along his sincerest gratitude to everyone who has helped him get to this point. He would also appreciate some privacy during this crucial point in his recovery."

Morgan is also suing Walmart for negligence on the store's part that led to the accident -- Walmart driver Kevin Roper allegedly hit the limousine van Morgan was riding in after allegedly falling asleep at the wheel.

Plaintiffs in the suit include Krista Millea, wife of the late comedian James McNair who died in the accident, as well as Morgan's assistant Jeffrey Millea and comedian Ardie Fuqua.
