(Philadelphia)_Authorities say a Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver has been charged with possessing an unloaded 9-mm handgun without a permit and a small amount of marijuana after he was pulled over for speeding.

A court complaint filed in Gloucester City, New Jersey, said that Josh Huff was pulled over on the Walt Whitman Bridge around 11 a.m. Tuesday.

A Delaware River Port Authority officer said the gun's magazine was next to the gun and it wasn't loaded.
Huff's bail was set at $25,000.

The Eagles said in a statement that they are aware of the incident and are gathering more information.

Agents for Huff did not immediately return a message seeking comment from The Associated Press.

Huff was the Eagles' third-round pick in 2014 from Oregon. He has two touchdowns this season, including a 98-yard kick return.
