After getting off to a very quick start on opening weekend by blowing out Purdue, the Cincinnati Bearcats football team did not have the same results in this past Saturday during their Week 2 matchup against Illinois. They were readily handled by the resurgent Nathan Scheelhaase and the Fighting Illini. Also–and probably much worse news–dual-threat QB sensation Munchie Legauz suffered a gruesome knee injury.

Legaux spent the fast few days being evaluated and was just transported back to a Cincinnati hospital yesterday. There hasn’t been much of a prognosis given–until now.

ESPN is now reporting that the QB will miss the rest of the season. The school hasn’t received any specifics of the injury, but head coach Tommy Tuberville did offer up these words to the Cincinnati Enquirer:

“It was pretty significant,” Tuberville said, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. “Obviously we all saw it on TV.”

It indeed was a horrific injury and we wish nothing but the best for the young man.

As of now, Brendon Kay will be the sole starting QB of the Bearcats.
