Patterson, 28, was the Eagles' first-round pick out of Southern California in 2005. He's started 84 games and played in 95, the most of anybody on the current roster.
Burkholder said there's no timetable for Patterson's return.
"We'll turn that over to the neurologists and those people who are absolute experts," he said. "It's not like hamstring strains. We don't see tons of seizures in our sport, so that's why I have a whole team of physicians, and Lehigh Valley Hospital has a great neuro department, so we're allowing them to handle the case now and then we'll get him to see our docs down at the Pennsylvania Hospital eventually."
With Patterson and fellow defensive lineman Trevor Laws (hip) both possibly out for a while, the Eagles agreed to terms with veteran tackles Anthony Hargrove and Derek Landri
Hargrove, a third-round pick of the Rams in 2004, has played in 87 regular-season games, starting 25. He was suspended twice while with the Buffalo Bills for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, for four games in 2007 and then for the entire 2008 season.
He returned to the NFL in 2009 and had a career-high five sacks in 16 games, six starts, for the Super Bowl-champion New Orleans Saints. Hargrove played 14 games last season for the Saints.
Landri spent his first three seasons with the Jaguars, who drafted him out of Notre Dame in 2007.
He was claimed off waivers by the Panthers late in 2009 and started all 16 games for Carolina last year, the first starts of his career. He had three sacks last year and has six in 51 career games.
