MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A former fan favorite of the Minnesota Vikings is undergoing surgery on Thursday to remove a brain tumor.

Vikings officials say former defensive end Chris Doleman is having the procedure done. Doleman turned 56 years old last October and was a first-round pick of the Vikings in the 1985 NFL Draft. He played his first eight seasons in Minnesota before playing in Atlanta and San Francisco. He returned to Minnesota for his final season in 1999.

The entire Vikings family is thinking of Chris Doleman and wishing him the best as he undergoes surgery.
