Huntley rushed five times for 19 yards and caught one of two targets for no gain across five games of the 2020 season.
Analysis: Until Week 17, Huntley only saw time in the offense in the three games Miles Sanders missed due to injury and even then only played 11 snaps behind Boston Scott and Corey Clement. If the 2020 fifth-rounder is back with the Eagles next season, it will again be in a depth and special-teams role.
Huntley (illness) was able to practice without limitations Wednesday.
Analysis: Huntley missed Sunday's loss to the Cardinals due to an illness, but he appears to have regained his health. Even if he is able to play, the rookie out of New Mexico State may not see the field -- he has not taken a snap since Week 8 .
Huntley (illness) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
Analysis: Huntley's ailment will force him to sit out Sunday's contest, but it isn't as though he was a likely candidate to see the field anyway. He's been a healthy scratch since Week 8.
Huntley (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Giants.
Analysis: Huntley received some work over the last two games with Miles Sanders sidelined with a knee injury, and he recorded 13 yards on two carries and added 36 yards as a kick returner. The rookie will watch from the sidelines Sunday with Sanders back in action.
Huntley (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Rams.
Analysis: Huntley made his NFL debut in Week 1 against Washington, but with Miles Sanders returning from a hamstring injury, Huntley will watch from the sidelines Sunday.
Huntley gained one yard on his lone carry in Sunday's 27-17 loss to Washington.
Analysis: Even though Miles Sanders was out with a hamstring injury, Huntley only got on the field for one play as Boston Scott and Corey Clement handled the vast majority of the work in the Eagles backfield. If Sanders is able to return for Week 2, the rookie is even less likely to see action.
Huntley was claimed off waivers by the Eagles on Sunday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: Huntley was a surprise cut by the Lions on Sunday, despite being a fifth-round pick and having a solid training camp. With Miles Sanders (lower body) on track for Week 1, Huntley will likely have to assume a depth and special team's role to start the 2020 campaign.
Huntley was waived by the Lions on Saturday, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: This was a puzzling decision as Huntley, a 2020 fifth-round pick, supposedly looked solid during training camp. Expected to be the team's newest rendition of Theo Riddick, the pass-catching responsibilities will now likely fall on Ty Johnson, and to a lesser extent, D'Andre Swift. If anything, the decision to waive Huntley should reinforce the notion that Swift, who has missed time in practice with an undisclosed injury, should be plenty healthy for the team's Week 1 contest against the Bears.
Huntley impressed as a between-the-tackles runner during Saturday's scrimmage, Rob Beard of The Detroit News reports.
Analysis: Given the presence of Kerryon Johnson, D'Andre Swift, and Bo Scarbrough, a role in the passing game remains Huntley's easiest path towards seeing the field on offense in 2020. However, Saturday's performance suggests it might not be accurate to pigeon-hole the 5-foot-9 rookie as a scatback, especially after Huntley topped 1,000 yards rushing at 7.1 yards per carry during his final season at New Mexico State in 2019. Should the injury bug strike the top of the depth chart, it's seemingly increasingly possible that Huntley could gain fantasy relevance at some point this year.
