Deion Sanders reveals he underwent surgery to amputate two toes following three battles with life-threatening blood clots.
The NFL legend and Jackson State coach spent most of the 2021 season in a wheelchair.
He underwent foot surgery last fall to repair an injury, however, his foot was very slow to heal and there were complications.
Deion was ultimately diagnosed with blood clots.
As a result, he had to have his big toe and the second toe on his left foot amputated and spent three weeks in a Mississippi hospital.
Deion Sanders detailed his experience in “Coach Prime,“ his YouTube series, produced by SMAC Entertainment and Barstool Sports.
PrimeTime shared a clip from the episode via Instagram along with the caption:
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!

Deion’s diagnosis revealed his family’s history of blood clots and he was at risk of having to have his leg amputated from below the knee.
I’m so glad that wasn’t the case and I am sending love and prayers to Deion Sanders for a speedy recovery.
