Josh Huff’s name keeps coming up for all the wrong reasons.

Most recently, he seemed to pin his actions during the Micah Hyde punt return on his coaches, saying: “I just did my job, did what the coaches told me to do. If I would have stuck to what I know, I would have made that play.”

Huff admitted that he let his frustrations get the better of him in the locker room at Lambeau Field Sunday, but also said his comments were misinterpreted to a degree.

“I’m definitely not the one to point fingers for my mistakes. What I was trying to get across was that I always listen to what the coaches tell me and it was to break down before I got to the returner because last week when we played the Panthers I almost had a run-in with the returner, and it would have been flagged if I dropped the ball. Me slowing down as much as I did kind of interfered with my timing that I had with the punt and led me to miss the tackle that I normally would make nine out of ten times.”

That sequence was just another example of a rookie who hasn’t quite found the right balance between mind and body on the field. Read more »

So, how are the highest of the highly-touted receivers doing through eight weeks? And how do Jordan Matthews and Josh Huff stack up? Let’s take a look: Read more »

DeMeco Ryans donned a helmet for the first time at practice this week, but said he likely won’t know until Sunday whether he’ll be able to play after suffering a groin strain against the Rams.

“When Sunday gets here, we’ll see how it feels,” he said. “If I can go, if I’m effective, feel like I can help my team, I’ll be out there. If I’m not, then I won’t be.”

On the Eagles’ official injury report, he was listed as limited.

“Just trying to get back to it, just trying to get back into where I can go full swing,” Ryans said. “Certain movements don’t feel too good. When I’m effective, I’ll be out there.” Read more »

A frustrated Josh Huff told reporters yesterday that he has been ready to play for the last week-and-a-half. Not so, says Chip Kelly. 

“He wasn’t ready to go physically or mentally last week. He knew that. We talked to him on Friday, told him what his status was and that he wasn’t going to be active on Sunday,” he said. “Last week was his first full week practicing, and then didn’t actually practice all through Wednesday, took a shot and was out for a couple plays. We have to make sure that he is 100 percent healthy physically and mentally to go play.” Read more »

Kendricks Misses Practice, Is ‘Day To Day’

Kendricks

Inside linebacker Mychal Kendricks left Monday night’s game against the Colts in the second half with what he called a calf strain.

But Kendricks was not practicing during the portion of today’s session open to the media.

“He’s day to day,” said Billy Davis. “I’ve got a plan for either [way], and obviously without him practicing today, we’ll see where that is. We’ll have the other guys get the reps. Toward the end of the week, we’ll have a better feel.” Read more »
