Defensive tackle Mike Patterson rejoined the Eagles at Lehigh University Friday afternoon, just two days after suffering a seizure that the team has said was caused by a blood vessel irregularity in his brain – a brain AVM.  Patterson’s agent J.R. Rickert said he expects the 27-year-old defensive tackle to be cleared soon to resume football activities, but the Eagles aren’t nearly as optimistic.  “He is scheduled to see a neurologist in Philadelphia in the next day or so,” Rickert said in a statement he posted on his website.

Mike Vick angered by Rob Ryan’s comments: ‘I hope he backs it up’

August 6 Dallas Morning News

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Mike Vick admitted Friday that Rob Ryan’s comments from earlier in the week made him mad. The superstar athlete was offended by what he interpreted as the Cowboys defensive coordinator taking a shot at his team.  “I was mad about that,” Vick said during an interview on Philadelphia’s 97.5 The Fanatic (WPEN-FM). “Sometimes my emotions do come into play and I felt like that was inappropriate. But he’s going to have to deal with us. And he’s going to have to find solutions just like everybody else.”
