Eagles get scare from Mike Patterson


Thankfully, he's going to be alright.

For those catching up: Philadelphia Eagles defensive tackle Mike Patterson appears to have had a seizure early this morning at the Eagles training camp in Bethlehem, PA.

The 28-year-old was quickly attended to by the Eagles training staff and taken to a nearby hospital. There were initial fears it might have been heat related, but it had yet to reach 80 degrees at the time of the incident.

We wish Patterson, who believe it or not, is the senior member of the Eagles roster, nothing but the best. Eagles trainer Rick Burkholder says Patterson will spend the night at the hospital for observation, but he's stable and seemingly in good spirits.

One other note: The first to respond and help Patterson was teammate Danny Watkins. Watkins, a rookie, is also a certified paramedic and knew how to treat.
