On Wednesday morning, Deion Sanders had surgery to fix two problems with his toes.

Planned Future Role of DEION Sanders as a Coach

Several sources have stated that Coach Prime may not be absent from his position as head coach at Jackson State University.

Unlike Sanders, In this video, Dr James Hurt, MD, a sports medicine specialist in Jackson, Mississippi, discusses his toe issues and how Dr Lori Reed, an orthopaedic surgeon, would approach his operation.

Sanders was informed by Dr Hurt that Sanders’s foot “had a malformation that Dr Reid would be correcting because of an old football accident.” When asked why he was using the word “deformity,” Deion Sanders asked, “why you have to call it, Doc?”

An additional comment from the injured party was that he has an “old claw toe, and your second toe is dislocated.”
Sanders’s toe dislocation has worsened over time, suggesting that it first appeared some time ago.

The second toe will be shortened by detaching a tendon from the bone and then straightening the first toe.

After a few weeks in a boot and on a scooter, Deion Sanders will be back to coaching.

To add some extra incentive, Coach Prime is holding a contest for anyone who can properly predict when the anaesthetic will put him to sleep.
