Despite having his fourth eye surgery this year just nine days ago, Mike Zimmer made it to Jacksonville and was on the sidelines as the Vikings took on the Jaguars.

The head coach was able to fly down to Florida, despite some earlier concerns that his recovery from detached retina surgery would mean he'd have to drive, and was sporting an eye patch as he directed Vikings plays.

Needless to say, the internet has been having a bit of fun with this.
