(NEW YORK) — Tracy Morgan is on the mend. The actor spoke out Monday as he left his home in Cresskill, New Jersey.

“I’m OK,” he said, according to the New York Daily News. “I feel strong.

Then, when photographers applauded the former 30 Rock star, who walked slowly and with a walker, he waved and smiled.

“Love you, thank you very much,” he said. “Appreciate it.”

Morgan, 45, was seriously injured last month when a truck hit the vehicle in which he was riding. He suffered a broken femur, a broken nose and several broken ribs, among other injuries. His friend, comedian James McNair, died.

On Saturday, a rep for the comedian told ABC News that he had been released from a rehabilitation center and moved home, where he will continue to recover “with an aggressive outpatient program.”

“He asked me to pass along his sincerest gratitude to everyone who has helped him get to this point,” his publicist told ABC News. “He would also appreciate some privacy during this crucial point in his recovery.”
