Cincinnati quarterback Munchie Legaux was carted off the field on Saturday when he suffered a gruesome looking leg injury during the fourth quarter of a game against Illinois. While the exact injury is unknown, it appeared that he may have snapped his left leg.
Legaux was hit by two Illinois defenders as he was delivering a pass and immediately went to the ground. Players who were near him instantly signaled for the trainers and looked horrified after seeing the damage.
While we hate to speculate on the extent of the injury, it would be a surprise if Legaux played again this season. The way his leg bent almost looked similar to the nasty broken leg Kevin Ware suffered during the NCAA Tournament back in March. Here’s hoping Legaux enjoys a full and speedy rcovery.
