UCF hopeful for McKenzie Milton return next season

UCF isn't giving up hope on quarterback McKenzie Milton returning in 2019, Knights quarterbacks coach Jeff Lebby said.

"Yeah, I think so," Lebby said Saturday morning during a media session for the PlayStation Fiesta Bowl. "We'll kind of wait and see. I think it's day-to-day with him. That's just the reality of it, and working through it all with him and our medical staff and seeing where it goes."

A week ago, Milton's mother, Teresa, tweeted that Milton had gone through an "EMG nerve conduction study." She wrote that the test was "painful but so hopeful" and marked the beginning of his recovery.

McKenzie Milton won't be healthy enough to take part in spring practice, said Lebby, who left open the possibility of UCF requesting a medical redshirt for him next year.
