This week, Deion Sanders, the head coach of Colorado, is back in the hospital. Coach Prime, as he is lovingly known, has been having problems with blood clots in his legs and feet. People thought he could lose his whole leg because of the disease that runs in his family, but he has already lost two toes to it. Now he has to have surgery right away, and fans are afraid.
Pat McAfee tweeted on Friday, “Deion Sanders is having emergency surgery tomorrow because he has a blood clot in his groin… You’ve got this, #PMSLive Coach Prime.” McAfee was telling people what Adam (Pacman) Jones had told him. Jones had confirmed that Sanders had emergency surgery at 6 a.m. on June 22.
The sad news about Coach Prime’s health is the latest step on a long road. In 2021, he said that his family has a history of blood clots and that he was likely to lose his leg up to the knee. At the time, the famous player couldn’t wait for it to be over so he could move on with his life.
He had once been in a wheelchair. After his amputations, things seemed to be getting better for him, and his fans hope that this latest surgery won’t leave him forever disabled.
Sanders said in a message posted to his social media Thursday, “I went to the doctor the other day to get checked out, and they found two blood clots in my leg. One was in my right leg, and the other was in my left hip.
