Munchie Legaux is a solid quarterback in the college football ranks, but he might have to choose a different career as the senior QB suffered one of the most gruesome leg injuries you will ever see in the Cincinnati Bearcats‘ recent game against the Illinois Fighting Illini.

The senior quarterback passed for 1,716 yards, 13 touchdowns and nine interceptions in 2012 and got off to a bit of a slow start in 2013 with just 382 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions before receiving a blow to his leg that may be the reason his career as a football player may be over.

Legaux and the Bearcats were on the way to a crushing defeat to the Illini in week two when he dropped back to make a pass and got it off just in time, but an Illinois defensive lineman landed on his extended leg and seemingly did some heavy damage.

The video here is not for the faint of heart, watch at your own risk:

As you can see, the defender landed on Legaux in the perfectly wrong place and ended up doing some serious damage on the senior gunslinger. Cincinnati will miss the quarterback as he led them to a 42-7 win in the first game of the season and  head coach Tommy Tuberville has already declared Legaux out for the remainder of the season.

Depending on how serious this injury is, the young man’s career may be over, even if he is eligible for some sort of medical redshirt. Our thoughts go out to Legaux on a speedy recovery.
