Vikings' Zimmer to take time off after latest eye surgery

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer will be taking time away from the team to allow his right eye more time to recover from his latest surgery.

General manager Rick Spielman said Monday that the organization anticipates Zimmer to return to the job "in a few weeks." Players will take the field Tuesday for the first of 13 scheduled offseason practices, including the mandatory minicamp in mid-June.

"We all agree Mike's health is the priority, and we believe rest and recovery are in his best interest for the long term," Spielman said.
