NEW YORK (AP) - FX Networks says that Tracy Morgan's new series is waiting for him once he's well, but that his recovery is all that matters now.

Tuesday's statement updates the status of the TV project planned for the comic who was critically injured in a highway crash Saturday in New Jersey.

Morgan's recovery is expected to take weeks. The company says that whenever he decides he is ready to work, "his show will be waiting for him."

His half-hour comedy was scheduled to start filming in August for a January premiere on the FXX network.

Morgan suffered a broken femur, a broken nose and several broken ribs when a tractor-trailer rig smashed into his chauffeured limo bus. One passenger was killed. Three others were injured.
