BETHLEHEM, Pa. (AP) -- Eagles defensive tackle Mike Patterson is back at the team's facility two days after suffering a seizure at practice.

Patterson arrived at training camp Friday afternoon and spoke to coach Andy Reid for a few minutes before the afternoon session.

He walked into the building without answering questions about his condition, saying only that "I'll talk some more about it, but not right now."

Agent J.R. Rickert said in a statement earlier Friday that Patterson was scheduled to see a neurologist in the next few days.

On Thursday, Eagles trainer Rick Burkholder said Patterson had 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.
