Mike Bobo diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy, return date unknown

Colorado State University coach Mike Bobo has announced that he is undergoing multiple-day treatment for peripheral neuropathy after being hospitalized following CSU’s scrimmage last Saturday.

The condition, which Bobo found he had after undergoing various medical tests, is classified as weakness, numbness and pain in the hands or feet. It is usually caused from nerve damage. In Bobo’s case, the condition is most likely related to a knee injury that he received surgery for a few months ago.


The time of Bobo’s release from medical care is currently unknown. However, in a tweet, Bobo stated that he is “encouraged by the results on the on-going medical testing.”

Bobo also stated that, while hospitalized, he has remained in touch with his coaching staff and has frequently been watching film to prepare for week one of the regular season.

As a final note, Bobo stated that “I am hopeful I will soon be back with them working to prepare for our season opener.”

Bobo has now missed three consecutive practices. With Bobo temporarily off the sidelines, a number of coaches have helped lead CSU’s practices. Wide receiver coach Alvis Whitted, assistant coach Ronnie Letson, offensive coordinator Dave Johnson, as well as defensive coordinator John Jancek have filled in for Bobo in the meantime. Bobo has now missed three consecutive practices.
