Draft Scout McKenzie Milton News
12/01/18 - QB McKenzie Milton was released from the hospital one week after suffering a gruesome knee injury. Milton, who was injured in a victory over South Florida on Nov. 23, will watch his team play Memphis in the AAC Championship Game on Saturday with his family at his home in Orlando, Fla. ESPN reported that Milton already has undergone three surgical procedures on his right leg and will have reconstructive knee surgery in four to six weeks.
11/27/18 - QB McKenzie Milton's parents provided some encouraging news about their son, who suffered a gruesome leg injury in Friday's victory over South Florida. They reported that blood flow has returned to his leg following Friday's emergency surgery and that reconstructive surgery will be performed at an undetermined time in the future.
11/24/18 - No. 8 UCF lost quarterback McKenzie Milton to injury but still trounced South Florida 38-10 on Friday to extend the nation's longest winning streak to 24 games and complete a second consecutive undefeated regular season. Milton, eighth in Heisman Trophy balloting a year ago, hurt his right knee when he was tackled at the end of a 5-yard run in the second quarter. Darriel Mack Jr. replaced him and may make his second start of the year when UCF (11-0, 8-0, No. 9 CFP) faces Memphis next week in the American Athletic Conference title game. Players from both schools, which are located about 100 miles apart via Interstate 4, kneeled on one knee while a cart was rolled onto the field and Milton received medical attention in front of the South Florida bench. The entire UCF squad left their sideline at one point to form a crowded circle around Milton, who was placed on the cart and taken to the locker room and later a nearby hospital.
Before leaving, Milton completed 5 of 10 passes for 86 yards, including a 14-yard scoring throw to Gabriel Davis for a 7-0 lead. The Knights kicked a field goal on the first play after the quarterback departed to make it 10-0. Mack got plenty of help from a talented supporting cast that includes Greg McCrae to make sure UCF finished the job. South Florida (7-5, 3-5) finished the regular season on a five-game losing streak, its longest skid since 2013. McCrae scored on runs of 40, 39 and 31yards, with the second of the three TDs re-establishing a 14-point after South Florida briefly pulled to 17-10 on Johnny Ford's 34-yard catch-and-run for the Bulls' only touchdown. - AP College Football
