Deion Sanders’ feet are what first made the legendary two-sport athlete a star. Sanders’ speed set him apart on the gridiron and the baseball field. Deion even once even attempted to appear in an NFL game and a Major League Baseball game on the same day. “Primetime” is one of the most gifted athletes of all time.

Sanders was a television talking head for years as he covered the NFL in his unique style. In 2020, Deion Sanders became the head coach of the Jackson State Tigers. The historically black university plays at the second-highest level of college football in the United States.

Deion Sanders recently has been dealing with some health issues. Coach Prime was forced to miss a few games during the last season. After complications arose from a foot surgery he had last December, TMZ Sports has reported that Deion has had to have two toes amputated.

Sanders previewed the latest episode of “Coach Prime” for Barstool Sports. The reality show follows Sanders on his coaching journey at Jackson State. Deion revealed that he had to have the big toe and second toe on his left foot surgically removed several weeks ago.


“I told y’all we were gonna show it all in this documentary and that’s what this is. I got to warn ya This ain’t a pretty sight! I may have lost a couple soldiers in the battle but I never lost my faith in God! I endured a lot while I was in the hospital during our historic season but I am so thankful for GOD being there to help pull me through. I am so thankful for those who sent messages of faith and those who visited me during this troubling time. This episode of Coach Prime is an emotional one and you all deserve to know what went down so that’s exactly what we gon show you! I Love y’all and am elated to be on my way back. Episode 5 tonight at 7 PM CT on barstools YouTube”

The clip shows graphic footage of Deion’s struggle with foot issues. Ultimately, two toes had to be removed. Fortunately, Deion’s brain and mouth are functioning perfectly. He should be back on the sidelines this season.
