Mike Patterson shines, with treatment on hold

Eagles defensive tackle Mike Patterson will eventually undergo treatment for the arteriovenous malformation near his brain, which caused a seizure early in training camp.

The treatment will happen after the season. In the meantime, Patterson is taking medication and playing football at the highest level.

Patterson returned to action Thursday night and immediately recorded a sack. He’ll be a big part of Philly’s defensive line rotation, which has impressive depth.

“It feels good being out here with the fellas, feeding off the energy,” Patterson said via the Philadelphia Inquirer. “The fans came out strong, and it just felt so good to be out here.

The Eagles are still waiting for Trevor Laws, Antonio Dixon, and Juqua Parker to get healthy on the defensive line.

    Protect that melon big guy! Since Goodell only wants to pretend that he cares, don’t let him tell you that you don’t need the best available helmet and a mouthguard.

    Nice to have you back Mike.

    Good to see him back.

    Now if only Reid put such a premium on O-line depth the Eagles would actually be a “dream team”.

    melonnhead and jdandcoke strike again, with pointless Eagles hate.

    It’s funny that the Cowboys fan is mocking “playing football at the highest level” when none of the players on his team (D-Ware excluded) have played football at a high level since 2009.

    As for jdandcoke, well…. Giants!? LOL. Philly owned, eight games and running. Go get your shinebox.

    @ zeussuperman

    With all due respect sir, Miles Austin, Jason Whitten and Tony Romo have all played at a very high level. Their entire defense has sucked though with the one exception you have quoted. Don’t counter idiotic hate with more idiotic hate.

    Playing with an AVM seems a little nutty; regardless of how MP plays, here’s hoping he doesn’t compromise his health in the short or long term. He is certainly important to the Eagles D, but he’s surely more important to his family than to football.

    Trevor Laws is quietly in line to have a great year. Maybe not a pro bowler, but he will be a consistent contributor to the team when healthy.

    Wow, now it’s 8 games and running? Geez, by next week, the Giants will have never beaten the Eagles.

    Let’s refresh. Giants won the first meeting against the Eagles in 2008. Lost the 2nd and the Playoff game. Swept in 2009, no playoffs (so no playoff loss). Swept in 2010, again no playoffs.

    That makes 2+2+2=6.

    Can we all agree that it is 6 and running? Enough revisionist history.

    And the Giants may be “Philly-Owned” but you know what isn’t?

    The Lombardi Trophy.

    A POSITIVE EAGLES ARTICLE ON PFT?? no way.. thank you almighty gods of sports writing. we are not worthy….

    Hey TheBirdsFlyHigh,

    The only reason why you see negative reporting is due to the fact that it’s a direct reflection of their fans, and how they treat their team. One bad game for any given player on your roster is not a good reason to run them out of the city. You guys are a bunch of loose cannons, hating on your own team after a loss.

    cowboyhater, ask any Eagle player how he feels about the Philadelphia fans and the way they are treated by them. you will get a BIG surprise.

    You’re right; apologies to real cowboys fans on this site, not Eagles thread trolls like melonnhead.

    You have players who do play at high levels, but not always coherently as a team. Trust me, as an Eagles fan, I know how frustrating that can be.

    @gcsuk

    I love trash talking, obviously way more than I love math. Haha. Okay, Philly owned six times and counting.

    We’ll own the Lombardi trophy… one day! … I hope.
