Doctors initially feared Sanders would actually end up losing his leg. The stunning detail was revealed in a trailer for the “Coach Prime” documentary.

A lot is still to be determined, but he’s gonna have a procedure done a little later today,” a doctor said in the “Coach Prime” trailer, via TMZ Sports.

Luckily, Deion Sanders avoided such a route. He underwent surgery to fix a dislocated toe and has been recovering ever since.

Sanders spent the majority of the 2021 season in a motorized wheelchair.

He then progressed to a walking boot and eventually took it off and began walking normally late last year.
