Minnesota Vikings’ head coach Mike Zimmer is undergoing emergency eye surgery Wednesday night. The team’s general manager released the following statement:
“Mike Zimmer is having emergency eye surgery tonight. His status for coaching tomorrow’s game is uncertain. I have met with the coaches and players and we have a contingency plan in place if Mike is unable to coach against Dallas.”
The surgery puts the coach in doubt for tomorrow night’s matchup against the Dallas Cowboys. It is unsure if the procedure is in relation to a similar operation in early November to repair a torn retina.
