DT Mike Patterson Activated for Monday Night vs Saints

Eagles defensive tackle Mike Patterson has been activated off the reserve/non-football illness list and is ready to play for the first time this season.

Patterson is eligible for Monday night’s game at New Orleans (2-5). Patterson says he’s ”really anxious” to return to the field and expects to play only a few snaps as he eases his way back into the lineup.

He suffered a seizure at practice on Aug. 3, 2011, and was diagnosed with a brain AVM, or arteriovenous malformation, a prenatal condition in which blood travels abnormally between the arteries and veins.

He played the first 15 games of last season but was not cleared to play for the start of this season because the incision where he had brain surgery in January hadn’t fully healed.

The Eagles (3-4) released linebacker Jason Williams to make room on the 53-man roster.

    yep slept on it and still say bring the ax! i say promote bowles after andy and marty r bounced ! go after dungy cowher gruden after season.this team needs kick n the ass overhaul. and i still say king on right and bell on left. think ive been proven correct. this offense puts mor pressure on oline and mike nstead of leaning on leseans young elite ass. yeah lets throw sixty times a game wth juco line.. and bryce brown blows

    and if anybody thinks foles gives us a bettr chance, incl andy, they r dumb as hell. im sick of seein blazn wrs run dink and drunk routes. desean and clay harbor are only playmakers or mike has to make amazing scramble to keep play alive then perfect throw to mediocre playmakers outside of aforment…andy should sit first not mike

    Foles has GOT to be better than Vick, he’s KILLING this team with the turnovers and hasn’t been able to make more than 2-3 big plays the whole year!

    Give the backup a shot!
