Scary moment at Eagles training camp

Thoughts and prayers remain with Philadelphia Eagles defensive tackle Mike Patterson who suffered a seizure yesterday during practice. It was originally believed the seizure was due to dehydration, but tests revealed something much more serious.

Eagles trainer Rick Burkholder announced that Patterson was diagnosed with a brain arteriovenous malformation, which is a tangle of blood vessels in his head.

AVM is a congenital condition that will require either surgery or radiation; the Eagles are consulting various specialists before deciding on a course of action. Patterson is still at Lehigh Valley Hospital in Allentown, Pa, which is where he was taken after the seizure. (Pic courtesy of Yahoo! sports) click here for the rest of the story
