Tampa news stations reported junior quarterback McKenzie Milton had emergency surgery on his right knee in order to restore blood flow to his leg.

Milton’s right knee dislocated during the second quarter of the UCF-USF football game, according to Tampa’s WTSP, and the quarterback’s knee was popped back into place by doctors.


An NFL doctor expanded on Twitter the type of injury that took place, stating emergency surgery would be needed to restore blood flow before permanent muscle damage formed, typically a few hours after the injury occurs.

Tampa General Hospital will update Milton’s condition Saturday morning.

The Knights went on to score four more touchdowns and a field goal to win the War on I-4 and claim another perfect season. Greg McCrae accounted for three touchdowns.

Memphis will travel to Orlando on Saturday, December 1 for the AAC Championship.
