Mike Zimmer to Miss OTA Practices

Hosting a charity football camp for the Mike Zimmer Foundation this weekend, Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer appeared well-rested and excited to give back to the local community. His right eye, however, looked to be in bad shape.

Zimmer recently underwent an eighth eye surgery, all spawning from a detached retina suffered last October. Matt Vensel of the Star Tribune reports the same injury could crop up in Zimmer’s left eye at some point, but for now, the focus is preventing any further damage.

The team announced on Monday—likely as a precaution—that Zimmer would miss a portion of OTAs, which begin tomorrow. General manager Rick Spielman released the following statement:

“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. 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.”
