No one has to worry about Vikings coach Mike Zimmer overseeing the start of offseason workouts, since he’s working on simply seeing.
According to Matt Vensel of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, the Vikings coach was scheduled for his fifth eye surgery Monday.
Zimmer has had constant problems with his right eye, but if this latest one goes well, he’d only need a cataract surgery in a few months.
Coaches have an extremely limited role in the first phase of offseason workouts anyway, so it’s not as if Zimmer’s missing much. He missed a game in December after an emergency surgery, but came back to coach later in the season.
