Mike Zimmer will miss Vikings OTAs to recover from 8th eye surgery

Youth Jason Verrett Jersey It took eight different eye surgeries to repair a detached retina that Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer suffered during the 2016 season. On Monday, the team announced that Zimmer will be taking some time away during OTAs to fully recover.

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, the statement from general manager Rick Spielman read. 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.

What’s best for our football team is that we move forward and move on,” Browns coach Hue Jackson said in September, via Cleveland.com.

Gordon’s agent terminated their business relationship about two weeks before the league ruled against reinstatement, according to ESPN’s Josina Anderson.

Johnson added, He’s also in the best shape of his life and feels even better than he did when he had his breakout year in 2013.
