Report: McKenzie Milton needed dislocated knee popped back into place
McKenzie Milton suffered a dislocated knee during UCF’s win over South Florida on Friday, according to reports.
Both CBS Tampa’s Ryan Bass and radio host Rock Riley reported that Milton’s knee was dislocated when he was tackled on a run in the second quarter. Bass says that Milton’s knee needed to be popped back into place because the quarterback was losing blood circulation.
Here’s what I know regarding #UCF’s McKenzie Milton. Early indication was its a dislocated knee, which cut off blood circulation. They did pop his knee back in place and doctors are with him. No confirmation of surgery, but he is at the hospital.
