Mike Zimmer has returned to coaching, expected to travel to Jacksonville, Vikings announce

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 15:49:38 GMT2016-12-05T15:49:38Z

Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer has resumed coaching and is expected to travel to Jacksonville for Sunday’s game, the team announced Monday. Zimmer, the 60-year-old coach who missed his first NFL game Thursday due to emergency eye surgery, will address reporters Wednesday during his regularly scheduled press conference. He’s expected to join the team flight on the 1,475-mile trip to Jacksonville. Zimmer is back to work three days after he reportedly underwent a fourth operation Friday after a follow-up appointment. The coach first had surgery on Nov. 1 after saying he scratched his eye in the Oct. 31 loss in Chicago. The Vikings (6-6) kick off against the Jaguars (2-10) on Sunday at 12 p.m. CT.

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer reportedly has fourth eye procedure done

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 04:38:00 GMT2016-12-05T04:38:00Z

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer, after a follow-up appointment with doctors on Friday morning, had another operation on his eye that day and “appears to be turning a corner for the better,” according to an ESPN report. Zimmer had emergency surgery late Wednesday night to repair a detached retina on his right eye. That surgery, then the third for Zimmer since Nov. 1, caused him to miss the team’s loss to the Cowboys on Thursday night. The latest operation, the one reported by ESPN, is the fourth on that eye. The Vikings canceled Zimmer’s usual day-after press conference for Friday but listed him on their media schedule for Wednesday’s access. The players, after getting the weekend off, report back to Winter Park on Tuesday. The team has not said whether Zimmer will make the trip to Jacksonville next weekend. In the event that doctors do not clear the coach to fly, it is possible that he could be driven the 1,400-plus miles down to Florida. With special teams coordinator Mike Priefer filling in for Zimmer the other night, the Vikings dropped to 6-6 with four games left in their season.



Can this year be a success for the Vikings?

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 04:00:58 GMT2016-12-05T04:00:58Z
