Ea­gles coach Doug Ped­er­son plans to play Josh Huff

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS -

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.”
