UCF QB McKenzie Milton leaves game following gruesome injury
UCF quarterback McKenzie Milton was taken out of a game early in the second quarter against South Florida with what appeared to be a devastating leg injury. Milton, one of the top offensive players in the American Athletic Conference, suffered the injury at the end of a play when he was running for a first down.
The entire UCF team came out to the field and took a knee as medical trainers quickly attended to Milton, who was then taken off the field on a cart. Trainers had wrapped his right leg in a cast as they placed him on a cart.
Milton had completed five of 10 passes for 86 yards and a touchdown with one interception as UCF was leading South Florida 7-0. No immediate update on his injury has been reported, but we will stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
The loss of Milton, of course, would be a critical blow to UCF as the Knights are attempting to play their way to a second straight New Years Six bowl game.
