Deion Sanders is finally fixing a long-term problem with his left foot, and he gave an update about it on Instagram from the hospital.

He posted a video just before he received anesthesia, and previously explained it this way: “I need your prayers and positivity. I’m having surgery on my left foot this morning & I plan on not Missing a beat. I have a high tolerance for pain but I couldn’t deal with the consistent pain I felt throughout the entire day in my foot. I have wonderful skilled doctors to ensure this surgery will be successful. Thank u for your prayers, thoughts and well wishes. God bless.”

TMZ Sports reported that Coach Prime’s “second toe is dislocated, and it’s been that way since perhaps Sanders’ football-playing days.

“You’ve been dealing with this for a long time,” the doctor said, “and it’s just gotten worse.”

Here’s how the procedure will go.

“She’s going to shorten that second toe a little bit by cutting through the bone,” the doctor said, “kind of reattaching it, lengthening one of the tendons and then straightening out your first toe to give you more room for that second toe.”
