UCF star quarterback McKenzie Milton suffered one of the worst injuries of the 2018 college football season, taking a brutal hit to his knee in late November that caused major problems.

Milton was in the hospital for several days and has been forced to undergo four surgeries. He will go through a fifth next month.

Unfortunately, Milton's football playing career has been put in doubt as a result of the injury.

UCF isn't ruling out the possibility of getting Milton back for 2019, though.


UCF isn't ruling out the possibility of quarterback McKenzie Milton playing in 2019, Knights quarterbacks coach Jeff Lebby said.

"Yeah, I think so," Lebby said Saturday morning during a media session for the PlayStation Fiesta Bowl. "We'll kind of wait and see. I think it's day-to-day with him. That's just the reality of it, and working through it all with him and our medical staff and seeing where it goes."

Milton has some pretty good options if he's unable to play again, too.

His former head coach, Nebraska's Scott Frost, has a graduate assistant position waiting for him. Hopefully, though, he'll be able to get back onto the field.

UCF, meanwhile, is set to take on LSU in the Fiesta Bowl on Jan. 1.
