Mike Zimmer Won’t Coach Tonight Against Cowboys


As we reported earlier this morning, Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer was in jeopardy of missing tonight’s game against the Dallas Cowboys due to unexpected eye surgery yesterday. Now, we’ve learned that Zimmer will, in fact, be missing from the sidelines.

“The most important thing is the concern for Coach Zimmer and his health,” General Manager Rick Spielman stated on a conference call.

Special teams coordinator Mike Priefer will step in as the interim head coach.
