Eagles defensive tackle Mike Patterson needed emergency medical attention at this morning’s practice, according to multiple reporters on the scene.
Geoff Mosher, who covers the Eagles for the News Journal, wrote on Twitter that Patterson hit the ground hard and was shaking on the ground. It’s not clear exactly what happened, but other players were visibly upset by what they saw.
Jeff McLane, the Eagles beat reporter for the Philadelphia Inquirer, wrote that “Patterson just went into convulsions.”
Patterson has movement in his arms and legs and is conscious.
Am ambulance arrived about 15 minutes after Patterson went down, and Patterson was loaded into the ambulance on a stretcher.
