Fallen Patterson needs more tests

Defensive tackle Mike Patterson was scheduled to leave Lehigh Valley Hospital Thursday after undergoing tests and being put on medications for convulsions suffered during practice Wednesday.

Patterson will return to the Philadelphia area for more tests and a plan to treat what Eagles trainer Rick Burkholder calls AVM - arteriovenous malformation. It’s a neurological condition that can cause convulsions, horrific headaches and strokes.

Burkholder wouldn’t say what the treatment would be or when Patterson might be back, if at all.
