Cincinnati QB Legaux coming back strong

NEWPORT, R.I. -- Cincinnati quarterback Munchie Legaux says he has recovered enough from a devastating knee injury that his goal is to be the Bearcats' starter when they open the season.

Legaux might be overly optimistic, but considering how far he has come since tearing two ligaments in his left knee during the second game of last season against Illinois, his positive attitude is understandable.

The senior from New Orleans with the memorable name and exciting game says he is about 90 back to normal. He's not cleared to play, but he can drop back and throw. He's not running as fast and able to change direction as quickly, but it's coming.

His approach is: "Let's see where this can go."

Legaux was at American Athletic Conference media day on Tuesday.
