McKenzie Milton Injury Update: Family Issues Latest News

The UCF football program has been without star quarterback McKenzie Milton since he suffered a gruesome knee injury in UCF’s regular-season finale on November 23; a 38-10 win over South Florida. And while he will not be returning to action this season, he will be on the sidelines for the Knights’ Fiesta Bowl matchup against LSU on New Year’s Day.
The news comes from Milton’s mother, Theresa, who took to social media to issue an update on his recovery.
According to Theresa, Milton will have one more surgery today — Thursday, December 13 — to make him more comfortable so he can make the trip to State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
“Good Morning Knight Nation! Wanted to thank you all for the prayers and good thoughts! Yesterday KZ has an ultrasound and it was music to our hearts! Today a surgery to get him more comfortable! He will be at the Fiesta Bowl to cheer his teammates on to Victory! Arizona bound,” she wrote on Twitter.
This will obviously be a huge emotional boost for the Knights.
UCF once again went undefeated, extending their winning streak to 25 consecutive games. The Knights won their second-straight American Athletic Conference title as a result. The matchup with LSU, however, may just be their toughest to date.
The 2019 PlayStation Fiesta Bowl will be aired live on ESPN, with Steve Levy, Brian Griese, and Todd McShay in the booth.
