MINNEAPOLIS -- After missing the first game of his NFL career on Thursday night because of a detached retina, Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer resumed his coaching duties on Monday.Zimmer is expected to travel with the team for the game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Dec. 11, the team said in a statement.The coach had another operation on his right eye on Friday, after a follow-up appointment on Friday morning. Zimmer had emergency surgery on Wednesday -- his third operation of November on his eye -- and did not coach in the Vikings 17-15 loss against the Dallas Cowboys.Special teams coordinator Mike Priefer filled in for Zimmer on Thursday night, while defensive coordinator George Edwards took over Zimmers play-calling duties on defense. Priefer said he was ready to coach another game in Zimmers place if the coach was not able to return for the Jaguars game, but Priefer added on Thursday night, I hope Im not needed in that capacity.The timing of Zimmers surgeries raised the question of whether the coach would be able to make the 1,500-mile journey to Jacksonville by flight, where changing air pressure could affect his right eye, or whether he would need to be driven to Florida. The Vikings statement, however, indicated Zimmer would be able to make the team flight on Saturday.The Vikings held the Cowboys to a season-low 264 yards, and became the first team to sack Dak Prescott at least three times since Week 2, but their loss dropped the Vikings to 6-6.The Vikings have lost six of their last seven games after a 5-0 start and fell two games behind the Detroit Lions in the NFC North after the Lions won at New Orleans on Sunday. A favorable finishing schedule, though, gives the Vikings a chance of winning out and possibly making the playoffs with a 10-6 record.

Over a year later, the paths of both Toronto Blue Jays pitchers continue to converge as they recover from Tommy John surgery. Both right-handers saw action Wednesday night when the triple-A Buffalo Bisons took on the Rochester Red Wings. Hutchison started and allowed two runs over three innings while Drabek, who entered the game in the sixth inning, worked three scoreless frames and was credited with the win as the Bisons prevailed 8-3. The fact that the pair appeared in the same game seemed appropriate since they have shared the same clubhouses quite a bit during the rehab process. Drabek, recovering from his second Tommy John procedure, pitched in eight games with single-A Dunedin before moving on to double-A New Hampshire for a pair of starts. Hutchison made three appearances with Dunedin and two with New Hampshire, all but one of them coming within three days or less of a Drabek appearance for the same team. Hutchison and Drabek have been valuable sources of information for each other about the recovery process. "The first time I got to meet him was last year in spring training," said Drabek, who has a 2.56 earned-run average over 31 2/3 innings in 11 rehab appearances. "We became close since we were younger guys and we could relate to the same things in a way. "I ended up living with him through most of the rehab and got to know him real well." Drabek is quick to recall the dialogue he and Hutchison have shared. "After a surgery like this, theres no reason to come back the first full year and try to be a hero," Drabek said. "I think I did that my first time and it started getting real sore. I had to take a little bit of time off a I still ask him questions about it. If he has the same pain as I do and he finds the right thing to get it done, Id love to do (the same)." Unfortunately, Hutchison hasnt found the same level of sharpness as Drabek, posting a 55.dddddddddddd09 ERA in 23 innings over seven minor league games. "Right now I need to focus on pitching as well as I can," said Hutchison, who has especially struggled in his two triple-A appearances. "Im not real happy with it. Its a matter of being more consistent and executing the way Im able to." Hutchison, who turns 23 next week, lasted 3 2/3 innings and allowed six runs in a rehab start for Buffalo last Friday. He was activated by Toronto the next day in order to be optioned to the Bisons. He quickly burned through 72 pitches and had seven of 15 batters reach base on Wednesday. "Too many pitches. I lost it a little bit in the second inning. It was frustrating," Hutchison said. "You have to execute quality pitches and thats what leads to good innings and then good outings. Thats what my focus is." The 25-year old Drabek, on the other hand, faced the minimum nine batters on Wednesday and had only one batter reach base on an error. "Im pretty much back to where I was," Drabek said. "I cant wait to see how it feels at 100 per cent, instead of 98 or whatever it feels like." Either way, the two have come a long way from those fateful June starts last year, when Drabek came out of a start against Washington on the 13th and Hutchison lasted just nine pitches against Philadelphia on the 15th. For now, while the two can ponder the possibility of joining the Blue Jays when active rosters expand in September, they also find themselves with an added role of helping the Bisons make the playoffs. Buffalo trails Rochester by two games in their division race and is half a game back in the hunt for the International Leagues only wild card playoff berth. The season ends on Labour Day weekend. "Every time I take the mound, I try to compete and do the best I can," Hutchison said. Drabek admitted hed rather be pitching for Torontos big league club, but he knows he wont get there overnight. "Right now Im trying to work my way back up and well see how it goes," he said.
