Sanders is entering his much anticipated first season in Boulder. He has made jokes about his health issues in the past and opened up about them. But sadly it seems as though his problems have taken a turn for the worse.

Now 55, he missed three games during the 2021 season at Jackson State due to complications from a previous foot surgery. Based off past comments made by Prime, it seems his rush back may have cost him his toes and now that entire foot.

Sanders is one of the greatest athletes of all time, staring on both the NFL gridiron and MLB diamond.
