Zimmer 'minor procedure' unscheduled, came after coach became ill

Fri, 10/17/2014 - 14:03
Vikings coach Mike Zimmer had an unscheduled minor procedure performed earlier today and is feeling well enough to return to the team Saturday morning, offensive coordinator Norv Turner told reporters after practice today. “He was uncomfortable and he wasn’t feeling real good [this morning],” Turner said. “So, obviously, that’s where that’s at. I just talked to [head athletic trainer Eric] Sugarman and [Zimmer] is doing great and will be ready to go in the morning.” Asked what was wrong with Zimmer, Turner said, “Right now, nothing because he’s gone through the procedure.” Zimmer was doing well enough for Turner to crack a joke when asked what he told the 2-4 Vikings about Zimmer when he huddled them after today’s practice. “I told them six weeks with them and look what they’re doing to the guy,” Turner said. ” So let’s go play better and win. Right?” Greenway likely a game-time decision Listed as out on the injury report are tight end Kyle Rudolph (hernia surgery), defensive end Corey Wootton (lower back) and linebacker Gerald Hodges (hamstring). Listed as questionable are defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd (elbow), who was limited in practice today after missing practice on Thursday, and linebacker Chad Greenway, who had full participation all week but might still be a game-time decision because of his  broken ribs and broken wrist. “It’s going to be a deal where they continue to evaluate [Greenway],” Turner said. “It’ll probably be a decision made Sunday morning.” Listed as probable are nose tackle Linval Joseph (ankle), receiver Cordarrelle Patterson (hip), cornerback Jabari Price (hamstring), tight end Chase Ford (foot), free safety Harrison Smith (ankle) and linebacker Michael Mauti (illness).
