    NFL Hall of Famer and University of Colorado Buffaloes Coach Deion Sanders could have his foot amputated due to lingering blood circulation issues in his foot that developed in 2021 after a surgery.

    Sanders, who became the head coach of Colorado in December 2022 after a successful coaching career at Jackson State University, has already had two toes amputated because of blood clots in his foot. He has had a total of nine procedures related to his blood circulation issues.

    "I don't have feeling in the bottom of my foot at all," said the 55-year-old Sanders during a taped meeting with his doctors. "I just want to know what we could do because I want to do it this summer. When we get rolling, I'm not gonna have time to do it."

    Sanders comments came on the "Thee Pregame" podcast during a conversation with vascular surgeon Donald Jacobs, who said that the legendary athlete could lose his foot. Sanders was a top athlete in the National Football League and in Major League Baseball and is the only athlete to ever play in both the Super Bowl and World Series.

    "Well I know what the risks are. I only have eight toes so I'm pretty sure I understand," Sanders said in response to Jacob's comments. "I just want to know what we can do, because I want to do it this summer, because when we get rolling, I'm not going to have time to do it."

    Sanders appeared to remain upbeat despited the daunting prospect of potentially getting his foot amputated.

    "As you know I've faced some medical challenges with my foot but I've never said 'WHY ME' - I keep moving forward, progressing," Sanders posted to Instagram. "See you never know what a person may be going through while I sit in your seat of judgment but you can trust and believe that we are all going through something - just keep the faith and know that if He brought you to it, He will bring you through it . . I'm CoachPrime and I'm built for this. #Coach Prime."

    At Jackson State University, Sanders amassed a 27-5 record and won back-to-back conference championships.

    Sanders was a two-time unanimous first-team All-American as a defensive back at Florida State and won the 1988 Jim Thorpe Award, given to the nation's top defensive back. He was hired by Colorado after the team fired former Head Coach Karl Dorrell during the middle of the season after the team was barely competitive on the field.
