UCF is arguably one of SEC fans’ most-hated college football teams outside the conference as Knights fans have sparred with Alabama, Auburn, Florida and LSU fanbases (among others) in recent seasons, but all that was put aside Thanksgiving weekend when Central Florida QB McKenzie Milton suffered a severe knee injury in which he nearly lost his leg due to damage to the popliteal artery.
Since then, Milton has had college football fans around the country pulling for him and hoping to see him back on the gridiron. He shared a recent progress report on his recovery with Matt Murschel of the Orlando Sentinel.
“I’m finally able to start weight bearing this past three weeks and I can put 75 pounds of pressure on (the right leg),” Milton told Murschel. “I’m basically walking with crutches until I reach my full weight and then I’m allowed to start walking, which could be around the end of April.”
Even though he’s using crutches and can only put 75 pounds of pressure on the leg, Milton remains involved with the Knights.
