In the continued effort to raise awareness of the turf toe pandemic and to give props to Derrick's "Old School Athlete Tribute" segment, I decided to do a piece on a notable case of turf toe ... Deion Sanders. Deion Sanders, mostly recognized for his alter ego, Prime Time, and his touchdown celebrations, will also be remembered for an injury that hampered him throughout his NFL career. As he neared the end of his football career, his playing time was severely reduced because of turf toe. The injury became so severe, that in 1998 Deion underwent surgery to correct the problem.
Currently, Deion does what every other retired NFL player does ... works as a host on NFL Gameday. I really just wanted to do this piece so I can post the video of MC Hammer ft. Deion Sanders "Straight to my Feet" or in Deion's case "Straight to my Toe."
