“Philadelphia Eagles defensive tackle Mike Patterson could miss the entire season following surgery in January to untangle blood vessels in his brain, coach Andy Reid said Sunday.
“Patterson was ruled out of training camp because the incision had not fully healed. He was expected to miss the start of the regular season, but this was the first mention that Patterson could be out for the year. He can be placed on the reserve/non-football injury list and would be re-evaluated after the first six weeks of the season,” Barnett reported.
“I think that’s going to be an extended time here,” Reid said. “We just have to see how that goes, if he’s able to go at all this year, we’ll just have to see how that works out. We’ll take checkups in increments here, but right now, that’s going to be a while.”
