Legaux moved to Cincinnati hospital

Cincinnati quarterback Munchie Legaux has been transferred to a local hospital after a gruesome knee injury landed him in the hospital in Illinois.

Legaux was injured in the fourth quarter of the Bearcats’ 45-17 loss to Illinois on Saturday. He was hit low while trying to pass and his left leg bent awkwardly.

He was taken to Carle Foundation Hospital in Urbana, Ill. The school says in a news release that he was transported to UC Medical Center in Cincinnati on Sunday.

The senior from New Orleans started Cincinnati’s first two games, though Brendon Kay had received playing time at quarterback against the Illini.

The Bearcats play Northwestern State at home on Saturday.
