Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer has ‘minor medical procedure’

Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer cancelled his day-after press conference after having a medical procedure.

Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer had what the team is terming a “minor medical procedure” on Tuesday morning after the Vikings lost their second straight game on Monday night.

The Vikings cancelled Zimmer’s press conference scheduled for 4 p.m. Central on Tuesday because of the procedure, but Zimmer is scheduled to talk to the media on Wednesday morning at 11 a.m., giving credence to the idea that the procedure is “minor.”

So far, the Vikings haven’t expanded on what type of “procedure” Zimmer had, but reiterated that it was “minor” in a text from a team spokesman.

Zimmer was not happy with the team’s performance after a 20-10 loss to the Chicago Bears. It was the Vikings’ second straight loss after starting the season 5-0.
