Patterson was diagnosed with a brain malformation last August after suffering a seizure during a training camp practice at Lehigh University.||||||| Eagles head trainer Rick Burkholder said Sunday that a piece of Patterson's cranium was taken off in January so neurosurgeon Dr. Robert Spetzler could remove the arteriovenous malformation, a tangle of veins and arteries that doctors determined caused the seizure. Burkholder said Spetzler determined Friday after examining an X-ray and CT scan that the area of Patterson's cranium that he operated on hadn't healed sufficiently to allow Patterson to return to football.
