What Happened To Deion Sanders Sr Leg?
Last autumn, Deion Sanders underwent surgery to amputate two toes from his left foot.
Three games were missed as the Hall of Fame cornerback and Jackson State football coach was in the hospital. The procedure’s specifics weren’t made public at the time.
Why His Toes Are Amputated?
His big toe and second toe on his left foot were amputated after he was hospitalised for blood clots related to a prior procedure, he said in a trailer for his online series “Coach Prime” on Tuesday.
The Associated Press reports that originally, doctors worried he would lose his limb.
Sanders gave fans an update about his condition during a four minute YouTube video.
Sanders missed three games earlier this season while on the sidelines recovering from foot surgery.
He experienced problems as a result, forcing him to use a motorised wheelchair as his foot started to heel.
Sanders’ surgery is still under wraps, but Gary Harrell, the Tigers’ interim coach, took over during Sanders’ absence and guided the team to three victories.
