Minnesota Vikings linebacker Cameron Smith’s surgery to repair an enlarged heart has gone as planned. Smith's genetic defect was discovered earlier this month, only after a false positive COVID-19 test. Coach Mike Zimmer said Smith was “in good shape” after the procedure Monday in Philadelphia. The recovery process will take about three months. He'll miss the 2020 season. Drafted in the fifth round out of USC in 2019, Smith is confident he’ll be able to resume his career in 2021.
