Eagles take precautions against illnesses

CSNPhilly.com: Eagles trainer Rick Burkholder fears the spread of disease among the team as Mike Patterson has viral pneumonia and both Michael Vick and LeSean McCoy were sent home with illnesses.

"We're very worried about our team, because we live like pack animals in here," Burkholder said Tuesday.

Burkholder said the Eagles are taking precautions to make sure whatever is going around the locker room doesn't get any worse. He said so far nobody else has come down with anything serious, but considering how much time the players spend together -- in meetings, in the weight room, in the trainer's room, on the practice field, in the locker room -- he'll continue keeping an eye on them.
