Michael Irvin had a very, very big weekend while splitting time between Colorado and California. The 57-year-old Pro Football Hall of Famer spent Saturday on the college football sidelines in Boulder before returning to Los Angeles for his first day back at NFL Network.

Irvin, who played his entire 12-year career with the Dallas Cowboys, spent the last five years of his career playing alongside Deion Sanders. He and Prime go way back.

As Sanders continue to lead the biggest story in sports right now, there is a serious buzz around his Buffaloes program. Everybody wants to be a part of the astronomical rise. Colorado, a team that won just one game last season, is cool again.

With that return to relevance, Sanders has been able to recruit some pretty big names to come out and help get his team ready for games. Terrell Owens has stopped by on a few occasions and was in town for the win over Nebraska on Saturday.

Irvin has also been involved over the last few weeks. He spent time at practice prior to the season-opener against TCU and gave a fantastic speech to get them hyped for the Horned Frogs.

Irvin was also on the sideline during Saturday’s home-opener against the Cornhuskers and was all kinds of lit!

Perhaps Michael Irvin was a little bit too lit…

Following the win, Irvin swung by the Colorado locker room. Not necessarily to speak to players or anything of that nature.

He needed treatment from the medical staff. Irvin took a photo with assistant athletic trainer Lauren Askevold in the training room and had a bag of ice wrapped around his right knee.

It was as if he had played both ways for all four quarters like Travis Hunter Jr.

Not long after getting iced up, Irvin hopped on his private jet back to Los Angeles. His lawsuit against Marriott was settled and he was cleared for a return to NFL Network.

Apparently, his knee was all healed up because Irvin picked up right back where he left off and was bouncing all over the set. Thank goodness for that postgame ice!
