Patterson Could Miss Entire Season

Eagles head coach Andy Reid confirmed today that defensive tackle Mike Patterson could miss the entire season as he recovers from offseason brain surgery.

“I think that’s going to be an extended time here,” Reid said. “We’ve just got to see how that goes, if he’s able to go at all this year. We just have to see how that works out. We’ll take checkups in increments here, but right now, it’s going to be awhile.”

What We’ve Learned About Nick Foles

Eagles quarterback Nick Foles.Andy Reid admitted earlier this week that while he’s impressed with Nick Foles, it’s important to acknowledge that the rookie is not going to see the looks in the preseason that defenses would throw at him when the games count.

“Everything’s so vanilla right now from an offensive and defensive standpoint, so people aren’t going to blitz you like they do [in the regular season],” Reid said. “At least the exotic blitzes, you’re not going to get [those] in the preseason.”

But that isn’t going to temper the enthusiasm from fans around the Delaware Valley who have seen Foles complete 24 of 38 passes for 361 yards, four touchdowns and one interception.

Before we look ahead to Foles’ start tonight against the Browns, let’s take a quick look at those 38 pass attempts to see what the rookie has been up against and how he’s really performed.

The veteran wasn’t having it. And all Kendricks could do was hold on to it or risk a penalty from his peers.
