Colorado head coach Deion Sanders is set to undergo a procedure to relieve blood clots in both of his legs.

“I have two clots in my legs: one in my right leg, one in my left leg, which is my thighs,” Sanders said in a video posted Thursday. “Now I’m having a procedure (Friday) to try to get those clots so now I can have proper blood flow to the leg so they can fix the toes. That’s what’s going on. That is it.”

Sanders also confirmed “there’s no talk of amputation” for his left foot.

“There’s no talk of any of that whatsoever,” he said. “The doctor was just telling me, worse comes to worst, (amputation) was going to happen.”

The 55-year-old’s update arrives after a surgeon said Sanders “could lose the foot” due to circulation issues.

Sanders has dealt with clotting issues since the 2021 season when he coached Jackson State. He was hospitalized following complications from toe surgery. “Coach Prime” sustained blood clots that forced him to miss three games and led to having two toes amputated.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame defensive back is intent on not letting his physical setback derail his debut season at Colorado.

“I ain’t going nowhere. I’m just trying to get all this straight, so when I walk that sideline and … I talk my talk, I can walk my walk.”

The Buffaloes will open the 2023 season against TCU on Sept. 2.
