On Tuesday, Colorado State AD Joe Parker provided an update on Mike Bobo’s health, saying the school had discussed contingency plans for the Rams’ opener this Saturday against Hawaii but declined to reveal them because he was optimistic they wouldn’t be needed.
“Obviously, we’re hopeful that this situation begins to resolve itself and we don’t have to go down one of those paths, but we’re prepared to do so if we need to,” Parker said.
On Wednesday, it became apparent the contingency plan may not be needed.
Colorado State posted a 17-second video of Bobo appearing at the Rams’ practice. Bobo does not speak or walk in the video — he spent close to two weeks in the hospital treating a peripheral neuropathy diagnosis after experiencing numbness in his feet — but he’s there nonetheless.

It’s too early to tell if Bobo will patrol the sidelines starting this Saturday, but the arrow is obviously pointed in the right direction.
Update: Bobo said Wednesday he will likely coach the Rams’ game from the coaches’ booth. “I can’t really put into words how excited I am to be back,” he said.
