Two days ago, Colorado State announced that Mike Bobo was undergoing a medical evaluation after experiencing numbness in his feet. “After our second scrimmage on Saturday night it was determined by doctors that I should be admitted to the hospital to undergo further testing,” Bobo said at the time. “I feel very encouraged by the test results to this point and hope to have some answers soon.”
On Wednesday, Bobo released a statement offering a lengthier update and revealing he has been diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy. Dr. Wikipedia describes PN as “damage to or disease affecting nerves, which may impair sensation, movement, gland or organ function, or other aspects of health, depending on the type of nerve affected.”
“While I have been hospitalized I have been able to remain in close contact with our staff and watch practice film in preparation for our season opener against Hawai’i,” Bobo said in Wednesday’s statement. He did not offer a firm timeline on when he will return, saying, “I am hopeful I will soon be back working with (the team) working to prepare for our season opener!”
