Josh Heupel Says KZ Won't Play for "Realistically the First Couple Weeks"


McKenzie Milton is working his way back from a gruesome knee injury that nearly cost him not only his football career, but also his leg. That injury occurred November 23rd, 2018. Now, nearly two years later, KZ continues to rehab and it's looking like we could see him on the field as early as this year.

But don't expect it early on in the season.

“McKenzie won’t play in this football game here and realistically the first couple weeks of the season,” Heupel said. “He’s continuing to do more and more out at practice. His heath is continuing to get better.”

The NCAA came out last month and said that any and all players, whether they play this season or not, will be granted an extra year of eligibility. For KZ, that would mean coming back to UCF for a sixth year.

Current UCF starter, Dillon Gabriel, said that Milton looks good.

UCF will kick off their season September 19th when they take on Georgia Tech.

Whether he plays or not, you can't help but be so happy for McKenzie Milton and the work he's put in to come back to play the game he loves.

And if you're wondering, UCF plays @ USF this season.
