Mike Zimmer has 8th eye surgery, will miss most of the Vikings OTA’s
Vikings coach Mike Zimmer disclosed over the weekend that he recently had an eighth surgical procedure on his right eye. On Monday, Zimmer has disclosed that the development will cause him to miss some of the team’s OTA sessions.
Zimmer told Paul Allen of KFAN that the fourth-year coach will miss an undetermined number of offseason practice sessions while he rests at home following the latest operation.
“As the Vikings begin OTA practices, Coach Zimmer will be taking time away from the team to dedicate to recovering from eye surgery and restoring his health,” the Vikings said in a statement. “We all agree Mike’s health is the priority and we believe rest and recovery are in his best interest for the long-term. We anticipate Mike back on the field in a few weeks.”
Missing OTA’s isn’t a huge detriment to the team, but the medical history of Zimmer’s is a cause for concern. Leaving football aside, it’s a concern for the health of one of the games best coaches. Everyone here at MFST wishes Coach Zimmer a speedy recovery.https://www.myfantasysportstalk.com/mike-zimmer-has-8th-eye-surgery-will-miss-most-of-the-vikings-otas/https://i2.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/zimmer.jpg?fit=389%2C271&ssl=1https://i2.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/zimmer.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1Minnesota VikingsNFC NorthNFLRecent PostsMike Zimmer,Minnesota Vikings,NFLVikings coach Mike Zimmer disclosed over the weekend that he recently had an eighth surgical procedure on his right eye.
