On Monday, UCF Knights QB McKenzie Milton spoke with ESPN.com’s Andrea Adelson about how his rehab is going, including running the scout team at practice:
McKenzie Milton is now running the scout team at UCF, another step in his journey back from a gruesome leg injury. We talked about that and more today https://t.co/ABFXOcnRVW— Andrea Adelson (@aadelsonESPN) October 19, 2020
This is the first interview Milton has conducted since he was cleared to resume practice.
Milton told Adelson in the interview that he went to see his surgeon in Minnesota in August, saying:
“It was the first time he told me, ‘You’ll be able to play football again.’ Hearing those words after a year and three-quarters, I’m just really grateful for all the help I’ve had with the medical staff, and obviously the healing hands of God, lots of prayers from Knight Nation and all across the world. I’m grateful for that, but I’m not satisfied. I’m going to continue to rehab and get better.”
Milton also talked with Adelson about approaching the coaching staff about running the scout team so he can get some reps, as well as the plan for the rest of the season with his rehab and more.
