Mike Patterson To Play Vs. Browns; Maclin Among Eagles Ruled Out

Less than a month after questions arose about his brain condition, which was said to require surgery or even radiation treatment, Eagles DT Mike Patterson is scheduled to play in Thursday’s preseason game vs. the Browns.

“He kept himself in good shape,” Coach Andy Reid said about Patterson. “We’ll treat him like it’s the first preseason game that he’s played. A little bit like I did with DeSean [Jackson] last week. Just limit his reps and see how he’s doing. Communicate with him during the game, see how he’s feeling.”

In related news, the Eagles have ruled out several well-known starters for the game against Cleveland. Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, who was just recently cleared to return to the field after suffering from an illness, won’t be suiting up. Ditto for pass rusher Juqua Parker, defensive tackle Antonio Dixon, and offensive tackle Ryan Harris, who will be replaced by King Dunlap in the starting lineup.
