Schein: Playing Mr. Fix-It
"He did a good job. He moved around well and there were no symptoms (from the) surgery he had with his head and brain," coach Andy Reid said after Saturday's practice. "He's felt good. He's felt good all the way through workouts and then once he came out here he felt good."
Reid said he didn't know how much the 29-year-old would contribute, but said he would "definitely monitor how he's doing."
"I think you would probably monitor how many snaps he plays," Reid said. "You're not going to put him in there and have him go the whole game, which our guys don't do anyway."
Kriegel: Another Philly fiasco
In August 2011, Patterson suffered a seizure which lead to a diagnosis of a cerebral arteriovenous malformation. He was placed on the reserve/non-football illness list Aug. 27 while recovering from offseason brain surgery to repair the condition.
According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine web site, a cerebral arteriovenous malformation is an abnormal connection between the arteries and veins in the brain that usually forms before birth.
