Eagles wide receiver Josh Huff was arrested Tuesday morning after being pulled over for speeding on the Walt Whitman Bridge in Philadelphia and charged with unlawful possession of a weapon and prohibited weapons/devices for hollow-point bullets that were with the unlicensed 9mm handgun that led to the other weapon charge.
Huff was also cited for DUI and for having overly tinted windows in addition to the speeding and received a summons for having less than 50 grams on marijuana. Eagles coach Doug Pederson spoke to the media for the first time since the arrest on Wednesday.
“Obviously disappointed,” Pederson said, via Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer. “Not what you want to see on a player’s day off.”
Unless new information causes Pederson to change his mind, Huff’s arrest won’t lead to another day off this Sunday. Pederson said that he expects Huff will play against the Giants.
That fits with how the Eagles have handled other off-field issues since Pederson became the coach. Linebacker Nigel Bradham has not missed a game this season and was arrested in July for an alleged assault and in October for having a loaded gun in his backpack while trying to board a flight in Miami. Bradham entered a not guilty plea on the latter charge earlier this week.
