If the blowout loss to the Oregon Ducks wasn’t enough, Colorado Buffaloes defensive back Shilo Sanders, the son of head coach Deion Sanders, said he was hospitalized after the 42-6 defeat.
Speaking with the YouTube outlet Well Off Media, Sanders explained how he had some painful injuries that needed to be checked out at a hospital once the team’s charter plane landed in Boulder Saturday night.
“I can’t say I didn’t play hard, I’m peeing blood right now,” Sanders said.
Sanders’ exact diagnosis wasn’t revealed, but he had an idea why he was urinating this way.
“I made a tackle and landed on my kidney or something broke. So, I gotta go to the ER and get checked.”
Coach Prime gave an update on his son Tuesday, saying he’s on the mend.

However, it doesn’t sound like it’s a definite he’ll be able to suit up against USC Saturday.
“He’s doing better,” Coach Sanders said. “We went to the hospital right after we landed. He’s doing much better. We’re praying that he heals and he’s playing this weekend. He’s a valuable part of our secondary and our team defensively.”
The Buffaloes’ defense already was without two-way star Travis Hunter against the Ducks, and his presence seemed to be missed. Sanders revealed Hunter wants to play this week, but he told him he won’t be suiting up until 100% healthy.
Not having Shilo in the secondary would be a detriment, too, as another starting cornerback would be sidelined.
Coach Prime knows what his son brings to the defensive side of the ball.
“(Shilo’s) one of the voices on the defense, and he plays with a certain physicality that we desire and we want. And he’s given me daily updates, trust me. I’m praying that he can play as a father as well as a coach.”
Sanders, who had six tackles against the Ducks, was seen talking trash to Oregon players prior to kickoff, and it obviously didn’t work out for the Buffaloes.
“I’ll beat the f— out of every one of y’all and your coach,” Sanders was heard saying. “Why y’all so little? We finna run through y’all a–.”
Sanders and the Buffaloes will be looking for some redemption this weekend, but they have an even tougher opponent in the Trojans, led by Heisman favorite Caleb Williams at quarterback.
