Eagles activate Mike Patterson

After undergoing offseason brain surgery, Mike Patterson's long journey back to the field is finally over. The Eagles announced yesterday that he has been activated to the 53 man roster. To make room, the team released LB Jason Williams.

Andy Reid says that watching him in practice these past couple weeks, he saw no symptoms from the surgery and that Patterson looked ready to go.

"He did a good job. He moved around well and there were no symptoms [from the] surgery he had with his head and brain. He's felt good. He's felt good all the way through workouts and then once he came out here he felt good."

Patterson was clearly excited about the prospect of getting back on the field.

"I'm really anxious. I'm, more than anything, just excited to be back out there. It's a fun game. I really love it and it's just fun to play it and I just feel really happy out there."

He says he doesn't expect to play a lot of snaps, but hopes to impact when he is in there.

"I'm going to try to do my best. If the play comes my way or if I get a chance to make a play, I'm most definitely going to give it all."
