Zimmer To Have Emergency Eye Surgery; Uncertain For Thursday’s Game

By Vikings – WCCO | CBS Minnesota

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer is heading to the hospital Wednesday for emergency eye surgery, according to a statement from the team.

The new development makes Zimmer’s status for Thursday’s matchup with the Cowboys uncertain. Vikings general manager Rick Spielman says the team is working on a contingency plan.

The procedure marks the second eye surgery for the coach in recent weeks, after Zimmer scratched his eye during a game in late last month, which prompted doctors to discover a torn retina. At the time, Zimmer said doctors told him that delaying treatment could’ve risked blindness.
