Agent: Eagles DT Patterson out of hospital
Friday, August 5, 2011
BETHLEHEM, Pa. (AP) -- The agent for Mike Patterson says the Eagles defensive tackle has been released from a hospital after suffering a seizure Wednesday at practice.
Agent J.R. Rickert says in a statement Friday that Patterson is scheduled to see a neurologist in the next few days.
On Thursday, Eagles trainer Rick Burkholder said Patterson has a brain condition that may require surgery. Rickert disputed a definite diagnosis of AVM, which are malformations or tangles of arteries and veins that alter blood flow.
Earlier Friday, Eagles coach Andy Reid said Patterson "is making progress and getting tests done."
