Mike Zimmer Undergoes 8th Eye Surgery
The surgeries apparently continued for Mike Zimmer last week as he had his eighth eye surgery according to ESPN.
Vikings NFL Nation reporter Ben Goessling reports that:
"the latest step in a continued effort to restore as much of his eyesight as possible after he suffered a detached retina last year."
The first concern for everyone is the health of Zimmer long term and making sure he has eyesight, but even last year you heard rumblings of whether or not this eye issue could potentially force him to step down someday.
Now with a eighth surgery, the hope has to become that they will end and he will be ok, if not, this could be a long term concern for the Vikings organization.
Even amid the surgeries during the 2016 season, Zimmer only missed one game.
