In the National Football League (NFL), Deion Sanders was a cornerback and a kick returner. He had a distinguished career and was renowned for his outstanding speed, agility, and covering abilities.

Sanders is having trouble getting blood to his foot. He also experienced compartment syndrome in 2021, which caused his leg to swell and require surgery to flay open in order to drain the fluid. Later, Sanders had both the second and big toes amputated.

And recently, doctors used ultrasound to identify the origin of the pain that Deion Sanders has when wearing shoes for an extended period of time. He was warned by a number of physicians and vascular surgeons at the University of Colorado that if the pain is not treated right away, it may develop into a condition that would require an amputation. Dr. Donald Jacobs said,

You just have to understand what the risks are. Things can cascade.

In response, the NFL Hall of Fame said, “I only have eight toes. So, I’m pretty sure I understand.” He also added,

I don’t have feeling in the bottom of my foot, at all. 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.

Deion Sanders has not yet made a choice, but he did note that the summer is the best season for remedial treatment. Otherwise, he would have to wait until the end of the winter recruiting season.
