McKenzie Milton Injury: Health Update & Condition

UCF quarterback McKenzie Milton suffered a gruesome leg injury during the Knights’ 38-10 win over South Florida. Milton underwent surgery hours later but was reportedly able to step on his right leg and take a couple of steps over the weekend.
Despite the positive news, Milton remains hospitalized at Tampa General Hospital.
UCF offensive lineman Jordan Johnson recently spoke with the team’s quarterback and spoke to about the post-surgery recovery.
“I called him to see how he was doing, and he was letting us know that he’s there for us,” Johnson said. “He wants to see us succeed, so we’re out there playing for McKenzie. We want to go out there and win for him. It was all good vibes. I told him it was good to see him smiling. He said that he got to walk the other day, and he never appreciated walking as much.”
The report further adds that the surgery was conducted to repair Milton’s knee and other “internal issues.”
It was an unfortunate end to a successful run at quarterback for Milton at Central Florida. Over the past two seasons, Milton is 24-0 as the starting quarterback.
This season, he had thrown for 2,577 yards, 24 touchdowns, and five interceptions.
Up next for the Knights is a game against Memphis in the American Athletic Conference championship game. Backup quarterback Darriel Mack Jr. will get the start for the nights.
We will continue to update this post with the latest information on Milton’s health and condition as it becomes available.
