Deion Sanders remarked on The Rich Eisen Show that he is feeling much better as he recovers from having two of his toes amputated.
“I’m not quite high-stepping, but my hand is behind my head. The hand is positioned behind the head. I’m advancing slowly but steadily, and I’m moving quickly, I swear “Sanders stated.
Every game we play and Every day that passes I’m more and more appreciative I get to walk in my purpose with my son leading us. @shedeursanders @gojsutigersfb @smacentertainment @conschwartz https://t.co/MAUrtZ2EcE

Sanders, who is in his third season as head coach at Jackson State, is leading the squad through spring practise. He’s been uploading Instagram videos of himself lifting weights and working out on an elliptical machine.
Sanders claims to have acquired a lot of strength during his hospitalisation. He missed three games during the 2021 season after doctors discovered blood clots in his leg, resulting in the amputation of his left big toe and the toe next to it.
“I’m back on my elliptical because I shed about 40 pounds,” Sanders explained. “I dropped 40 pounds in the hospital because I was eating nothing but applesauce. I lost 40 pounds but gained 50. So now I can’t fit into my suits, so I had to reduce down because I couldn’t do exercise. I ate everything in the planet. I mean, I used to look like Chris Rock. I’m currently attempting to access the old Prime.”
Sanders noted that his outfits are specifically designed for him and lack belt loops, leaving little room for weight growth.
“A few weeks ago, we had a big celebration, and I had to lay on my back to fit the pants, guy,” Sanders explained. “That doesn’t make any sense… I wasn’t pleased of myself since I had dropped too much weight, so I ate all I could and became obsessed with those Ensure drinks. Those sparked my interest. If anyone from Ensure is listening, I’d appreciate an endorsement.”
Sanders returned to coach the Tigers in a wheelchair against rival Southern, where his son Shedeur delivered the game-winning touchdown pass. Later, he led JSU to their first SWAC football championship since 2007. JSU also made its inaugural appearance in the Celebration Bowl, which was formed in 2015 as the de facto HBCU national championship game.
Sanders received the Eddie Robinson Award as the top FCS coach.
“It was insane, man. We couldn’t tell anyone, and we couldn’t say anything to anyone “Sanders explained. “Then I had two of my digits severed at the same time, as well as both of my legs dug out on the side. My children informed me that it appears that a shark bit both sides of my legs. I doubt you’ll see me in shorts anytime soon, but I’m getting better.”
