PHILADELPHIA (AP) 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 says 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 said Huff was at the team's practice facility watching film before the incident. He spoke to the 25-year-old third-year pro Wednesday morning before practice.
