(CBS News) – Tracy Morgan is still on the mend and despite reports, his leg was not amputated after being injured early Saturday in a New Jersey car accident.

The 45-year-old comedian, though, did undergo leg surgery and has suffered a broken femur, a broken nose and several broken ribs. He’s expected to be in the hospital for weeks.

“Tracy remains in critical but stable condition. His fiancee Megan is by his side,” Morgan’s rep told People about the actor, who’s being treated at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, N.J. “The concern for his well-being has been overwhelming, but Megan is respectfully asking that the media await official word through these channels before speculating (mostly inaccurately) on his condition. Rumors about amputating his leg are completely fabricated.”

The rep added, “This recovery will be arduous and we hope that you can be patient during this difficult time.”
