The Cincinnati Bearcats made the trip to Champaign to take on the Illinois Fighting Illini on Saturday afternoon and it was an awful day for senior quarterback Munchie Legaux. After throwing a pass with the pass rush falling at his feet, Legaux was hit in the back and tumbled forward over the players on the ground.
Unfortunately, Legaux’s leg got caught and ripped in the wrong direction as he made his way to the turf. The cart was brought out for Legaux after the medical staff and coaches immediately went running out on to the field.
It was a gruesome injury that gave us flashbacks of the Marcus Lattimore injury from just a year ago. It’s never something you like to see, but it is sadly part of the game.
Here is a GIF of the knee injury suffered by Legaux, via GIF.mocksession.com:
WARNING: GIF is very graphic.
Ouch. Your knee is not supposed to bend that way.
We hope that Legaux will be able to make a full recovery and wish him the best.
