Patterson’s agent JR Rickert noted: “this has been a long road for Mike since January. He is anxious to re-join his teammates on the playing field and he is fully confident in the care that he has received from his physicians.”
After being drafted in the 1st round by the Eagles in 2005, Patterson went on to earn a spot on the all NFC Rookie team.
