Eagles defensive tackle Mike Patterson continues to make steady progress after he suffered a seizure early in training camp.
Our friends at CSNPhilly.com note Patterson was back in uniform and doing individual drills on Saturday for the first time since he was diagnosed with a brian AVM.
There was some talk after the incident that Patterson would almost immediately return to all football activities. The Eagles have been more cautious, only letting him do individual drills now more than a week after he returned to the team.
“I feel great,” Patterson told Reuben Frank.
Philadelphia also placed wideout Steve Smith on the active/PUP list, which is no surprise. There is hope in Philly he could be ready to play fairly early in the regular season.
Teams don’t have to make a decision about the reserve/PUP list until the end of the preseason. Getting placed on that list keeps players out six weeks into the regular season.
