Left foot amputation a possibility for Deion Sanders

Colorado football head coach Deion Sanders received some difficult health news last week when a medical team informed him that due to ongoing circulation issues, he may be forced to have his left foot amputated.

Sanders previously had two toes on that same foot removed back in 2021 while he was head coach at Jackson State.

“Thee Pregame Show” released a YouTube video documenting Sanders’ conversation with his medical staff, which included orthopedic surgeon Dr. Ken Hunt, vascular surgeons Dr. Donald Jacobs and Dr. Max Wohlauer and athletic trainer Lauren Askevold (h/t ESPN). About midway through the 11-minute video, Jacobs admitted that amputation could be needed if Sanders’ situation continues to “cascade.”

If doctors do recommend amputation, Sanders said that he’d want the procedure completed as soon as possible to avoid missing time during his first season leading the Buffs.
