Eagles' Mike Patterson returns to practice after brain surgery

Philly.com's Rich Hofmann reports that Mike Patterson has finally been given the okay to practice after offseason brain surgery, over a year after having a frightening seizure in training camp. He could contribute on the Eagles' defensive line.

"I mean, it was pretty cool," [Mike] Patterson said. "I was very excited and stuff, kept on thinking about it. But I was real excited and everything. Just kind of happy to be back. Just got to take it one day at a time and just wait patiently until I get back on that real field."

According to the rules for players being activated from the non-football injury list, the Eagles will now begin a process of evaluation that can take as long as 3 weeks. By then, the team will have to activate Patterson or put him on injured reserve, ending his season.
