Ed McMahon broke his neck in a fall last year and is recovering after two operations. That's according to the publicist for the former "Tonight Show" sidekick. Susan DuBow says the fall happened last March. In a statement, the 85-year-old McMahon says, "It's been a tough year," but he's "working hard in rehab" and doing the best he "can to get through it."

DuBow says she is not allowed to release any further information for legal reasons.

She says McMahon was recently seen walking around at a public event in a neck brace.
