An unexpected leg injury sends UC Bearcats' quarterback Munchie Legaux to the hospital during a 45-17 loss at an away game in Illinois against the Illinois Fighting Illini.

Munchie was injured during a third-down in the fourth quarter after being tackled by Illinois defensive lineman, Tim Kynard. He was carried away in a cart for examination after the tackle.

A date for Munchie's return to the field is unknown.

Tommy Tuberville, the Bearcats' new head coach, tweeted, "Just visited w/Munchie at the hospital. Still undergoing evaluation. Extremely tough young man. Stay a prayer for him. #Bearcats."

The Bearcats will play against Northwestern State next Saturday, September 14.
