There’s good news on Mike Patterson, who was taken off the field in an ambulance at Eagles camp today.
A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT’s Mike Florio that Patterson is sending text messages from the hospital saying he is fine.
Patterson’s doctors believe dehydration is what caused him to collapse on the field.
The 27-year-old Patterson is a 6-foot-1, 300-pound defensive tackle who has been a starter for the Eagles for his entire seven-year career. The photo here shows a member of the team’s training staff cooling Patterson off during Monday’s practice.
Although Eagles players were visibly upset after witnessing Patterson going into convulsions, indications are that Patterson will be OK.
