Eagles coach Doug Pederson plans to play Josh Huff
Eagles coach Doug Pederson said wide receiver Josh Huff is expected to play this week against the Giants despite his arrest on gun and drug charges.
“It’s still an open investigation so I don’t know what’s going to happen in this case,” Pederson said Wednesday.
Huff was charged Tuesday with possession of a 9 mm handgun without a permit and having a small amount of marijuana after he was pulled over for speeding on the New Jersey side of the Walt Whitman bridge. His attorney, Fortunato Perri Jr., said Huff is licensed to carry in Texas and the gun was not loaded when he was stopped Tuesday morning.
Pederson was peppered with questions about the incident for the first 11 minutes of his news conference.
“I’m disappointed for the choices they make,” Pederson said. “The spotlight is on everything we do. You have to be smart. You have to make right choices. Everything is magnified. But again, once they leave here, that’s the hardest thing to get through.”
