Philadelphia Eagles player Mike Patterson collapsed from a seizure on the practice field Wednesday, the Philadelphia Eagles said.
“Patterson was taken to Lehigh Valley Hospital where he is being tested to see why he experienced the seizure. Patterson has had no complications from the seizure,” the football team said on its website.
It is unknown whether the incident is heat-related, but it comes at a time when many states are dealing with sweltering temperatures and a few high school football players have died after falling ill with heat-related symptoms at practice.
The temperature was about 80 degrees during the Eagles’ morning practice.
