Due to the surgery that took place on Thursday, according to Buffs Beat, Coach Prime will not be attending Friday’s Pac-12 Media Day that’s occurring in Las Vegas. The procedure was a follow-up to remove blood clots in his right leg, the second time in the past month. The initial surgery took place last month on June 23.
Sanders has been having issues with his foot and leg since 2021. Last year, he had his big toe and the toe next to it amputated. In June, Sanders had blood clots removed from his left thigh and below his left knee.
He is presently recuperating at UC Health at the University of Colorado Anschutz on Friday morning. No timetable has been mentioned for his impending release.
Sanders’ defensive coordinator, Charles Kelly, will hold it down for the football team in Sanders’ place at media day.
