Mike Bobo releases update on his health

On Monday it was announced that Colorado State football head coach Mike Bobo was going on medical leave due to experiencing numbness in his feet for several weeks. On Wednesday evening, the fourth-year head coach informed the public that he is in the midst of a multiple-day treatment for peripheral neuropathy, but is encouraged by the results of the on-going medical testing. 

“I want to express my sincere appreciation for the outpouring of care, concern and prayers that I and my family have received. Lainie and I, and our children, are extremely grateful for this support, and for the great medical care that I continue to receive," Bobo announced in a statement released though the athletic department. 

"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. I am excited about our 2018 Rams football team, and feel more confident than ever about the quality and commitment of the people in our football program. I am thankful for the hard work, focus and diligence they have continued to demonstrate while I have been away. I also appreciate the support from the athletic department, Joe Parker and Colorado State University. I am hopeful I will soon be back with them working to prepare for our season opener!”

CSU opens the 2018 season on Saturday, Aug. 25 against the University of Hawai'i. Kickoff is currently slated for 5:30 p.m. MT and is viewable on CBS Sports Network.
