Patterson Alert and Stable


Former USC DT Mike Patterson collapsed at Eagles practice early this morning and suffered a seizure that lasted for approximately four minutes, but he is stable, alert and joking with hospital staff, according to ESPN reports.

"He's absolutely alert, stable, totally communicating with everybody, even joking a little bit," said Eagles trainer Rick Burkholder. "We won't speculate what happened to him, other than he had a seizure. It could be anything. We don't even want to speculate what might have happened."

The Trojan All-American was drafted by Philadelphia in the first round of the 2005 NFL Draft.  He has more starts for the Eagles than any current player on their roster.
