Patterson Update Monday, Agent Says

Agent J.R. Rickert said today that there will be an announcement on the status of Eagles defensive tackle Mike Patterson on Monday. Rickert said the upshot is, Patterson won't be sidelined very long with what the team has said is a brain AVM, a tangle of blood vessels that triggered a scary on field seizure at training camp Aug. 3. Rickert said that though surgery has not been ruled out for the man who has played more games as an Eagle than anyone on the current roster (95), Rickert feels playing in the season opener is "definitely a possibility" for Patterson, who turns 28 next month.
