Two-time Super Bowl champion Deion Sanders set to undergo surgery for blood clots, minimizing risk of foot amputation

Deion Sanders, the former NFL Hall of Famer and the current University of Colorado Boulder football coach is facing some critical health issues. According to recent reports, he is scheduled to undergo emergency surgery on Friday to address a blood clot discovered in his groin area. He faced complications from foot surgery in the past as well. 

With the possibility of foot amputation, many fans are very worried about his health conditions. While an athletic lifestyle should usually keep a person fit, many times there can be opposite effects.

Jones shared about Sanders’ condition and expressed his concern for the HC. He also shared that Sanders had already undergone a significant operation in the past to address similar issues. 

“I had a chance to talk to him this morning,” Jones said. “But he’s up… I said, ‘Man, I hope they don’t have to cut off your d**k.’ That’s what I told him. I said, ‘Bro it’ll be bad if they have to cut off your d**k, bro. Just cut the leg off.’”

Jones emphasized the importance of Sanders getting healthy and wished him a full recovery.

“He’s been dealing with this since Jackson State. He had a blood clot in his leg—same thing with the foot. He was thinking about cutting the foot off and he didn’t,” Jones continued. “He went through a hell of an operation. I was there… to see him go through that and get back to where he’s at. I just want him to get healthy.”
