University of Cincinnati quarterback Munchie Legaux and wide receiver Shaq Washington have received eligibility extension waivers from the American Athletic Conference office, the league announced Wednesday.

Legaux (New Orleans, La.) will have one year of eligibility remaining, while Washington will have two seasons left. Both applications were approved in accordance with NCAA Bylaw 14.2.4.Legaux suffered a severe, season-ending knee injury in UC’s game at Illinois on Sept. 7, 2013. He had dropped back to pass and was tackled below the knees, and his left leg bent awkwardly. The ensuing hyperextension of the knee resulted in injury to several ligaments. UC expects that the earliest Legaux could return to practice would be this summer.

Legaux has thrown for 2,847 yards and 20 TDs in his UC career. He also has averaged 5.5 yards per rush, with 627 yards and seven TDs on the ground.

Washington (Maple Heights, OH) played in only four games his freshman year of 2011 because of injury. In 2013, he tied the fifth best single-season total in UC history with 78 receptions. He had 783 yards receiving and one TD and also averaged 13.4 yards per carry rushing.
