Comedian Tracy Morgan is beginning to shows signs of recovery after the deadly car accident last week that left him and six others in the hospital. Among those injured was Morgan’s assistant, Jeff Millea, and his rep has this statement to provide updates on both:

“Today was a better day. While Tracy remains in critical, but stable, condition, he continues to show signs of improvement. His medical team remains optimistic that his recovery is progressing. [Tracy’s fiancée] Megan remains by his side and is relaying the countless good wishes and prayers that his family, friends and fans have been sending their way. In addition, Jeff’s wife asked us to pass along that Jeff has also shown much improvement over the past few days. She is very thankful for the love and support she and their family continue to receive.”
