The Vikings announced Mike Zimmer will have emergency eye surgery. His status for tomorrow's game is uncertain.


Spielman Part 2: "I have met with the coaches and players and we have a contingency plan in place if Mike is unable to coach against Dallas"

Well that's no good :( He was always a class act here in Dallas, and sounds like he's still every bit of that. Best of luck and wishes to him.

This season's been tough on Zimmer. This news doesn't surprise me, I'd noticed that his eye wasn't looking too good in his pressers. Here's to hoping he heals fast.

Golly, this season has been tough on everybody. Hope he recovers quickly and gets back in the game... We need him.

It reminds me of that season when Coach Tice was injured (2005?)

I hope Mike Zimmer's surgery goes well. Eye issues are scary!

I hope it goes well for Zimmer and everything comes out great.

If it doesn't though, how mean would Zimmer look on the sideline with an eyepatch? Maybe he'll get a scar on his opposite cheek or something too.

a strong HC who built a solid coaching staff around himself should tolerate this well. I would be surprised if Priefer is not in lock-step with Zims strategy (even if I dont agree with it at times) and will not deviate much. I doubt this will hurt us much...who knows maybe Priefer will do a "This ones for the Gipper" speech and motivate our team to play out of its mind!

Conversely he could also utilized the defense differently and we have a dominate return to form... and questions will fly...

I suppose this keeps the Oline and offense in tact also. Why mess with it at this point if theyre trying to get things fixed.

So who's calling defensive plays, I wonder?

Priefer is a very good coach, but I think this is to allow Shurmur to focus strictly on running the offense though. Taking any concentration away from that unit is the last thing they want to do.

Well that's unfortunate. Hope Zim makes a full recovery. The Odin eyepatch is a funny thought though as long as he doesn't lose an eye. :govikes:

You know it's been a bad year for injuries when the head coach goes down. Who blessed the new stadium, a voodoo priest?

Hope he'll be okay. At least they'll have a couple extra days of rest this week.

The Raiders would want to sign him in that event...

Some good news:

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer returns to duties following eye surgery

Quote:
Vikings coach Mike Zimmer, who missed last Thursday’s game against Dallas following emergency eye surgery, has returned to his coaching duties, general manager Rick Spielman announced Monday.

In a statement released Monday morning, Spielman said that Zimmer is expected to travel with the team to Jacksonville for Sunday’s game against the Jaguars.

Zimmer had surgery last Wednesday night to repair a detached retina, the third surgery on his right eye in November. The 17-15 loss to the Cowboys at U.S. Bank Stadium was the first game he had missed in 23 years as an NFL head coach and assistant.

The Vikings will return to practice Tuesday; Zimmer is next scheduled to speak with the media at 11 a.m. Wednesday.
