Legaux hurt the knee during the fourth quarter of a 45-17 loss at Illinois on Saturday. His left leg bending awkwardly on a hit, and he was taken to a hospital in Urbana, Ill.

Legaux was transferred to a hospital in Cincinnati on Sunday. Coach Tommy Tuberville said he was having tests on Monday to determine the severity of the injury.
