According to EW, the actor, 42, is recovering from a kidney transplant he underwent on Dec. 10.
Tina Fey and the other writers of the hit comedy reportedly plan to address Morgan’s absence on the show by saying he has some sort of a meltdown because of a good thing that’s happened to him.
Morgan, who has diabetes, is said to be recovering from the surgery nicely. He was recently spotted at a New York Knicks basketball game.
His costar, Grizz Champan, also underwent the same transplant earlier this year.
