CSN Philly - [Full Article]

From the way his teammates are talking, Eagles rookie wideout Josh Huff could be sidelined for quite some time.

Huff, the team’s third-round pick, injured his shoulder on the opening kickoff of Friday night’s preseason game against the Patriots and didn’t return. On Sunday, coach Chip Kelly said X-rays came back negative but added that Huff’s shoulder was in a sling.

Kelly, who isn’t overly revealing about injuries, said Huff “probably” would be out for the rest of the week, including Thursday’s preseason game against the Steelers.

Riley Cooper painted a more pessimistic picture of Huff returning anytime soon.

“It’s sad to see what happened to Huff,” Cooper said. “I don’t know the severity of it. But I know he’s hurting and he’s going to be out for a little bit. That’s a given. He’d been doing really well. Special teams, I’ve been watching him do everything. I took him under my wing, just trying to explain things to him. We’re very similar personalities.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Huff was only going to be a WR4 at best on the Eagles, but was shaping up to be the team's kickoff returner.
