Munchie Legaux Undergoes Successful Knee Surgery
CINCINNATI University of Cincinnati senior quarterback Munchie Legaux (New Orleans, La./Edna Karr) underwent successful surgery on Friday, September 13 at UC Medical Center.
The Bearcats Director of Orthopedic Services, Dr. Angelo Colosimo performed the operation to repair several ligaments in Legauxs injured left knee.
Legaux is in good spirits and resting comfortably. He has already begun the rehabilitation process geared towards an eventual return to football. He will miss the remainder of the 2013 season.
Legaux was injured with just over nine minutes remaining in the Illinois game on Saturday, Sept. 7, 2013. He had dropped back to pass and was tackled below the knees and his left leg bent awkwardly. The ensuing hyperextension of the knee resulted in injury to several ligaments. There were no fractures or additional injuries.
At the time of the injury, the 6-5, 200 lb. signal caller had thrown for 237 yards and a touchdown while rushing for another 52 yards on the ground.
In 31 career games, Legaux has thrown for nearly 3,000 yards (2,847), going 205-for-396 with 20 touchdowns. He has averaged 5.5 yards per rush, adding seven TDs and 627 yards on the ground.
