CINCINNATI – A day after sustaining what appeared to be a serious leg injury, University of Cincinnati quarterback Munchie Legaux returned to the Tri-State.
Legaux left the UC Bearcats versus Illinois game in Champaign, Ill. Saturday by cart in the fourth quarter. The quarterback had dropped back to make a pass and was tackled below the knees. His left leg appeared to be injured, having bent back awkwardly.
The Bearcats lost the second game of their season 45-17.
Legaux was transported to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center on Sunday after he spent the night at the Carle Foundation Hospital in Urbana, Ill., UC sports communication confirmed.
No further details about the extent of Legaux's injuries were released.
UC's athletics department said it would offer more updates on Legaux's condition as they became available.
