Links with practice squad

The Eagles signed Huntley (ribs) to the practice squad Wednesday, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Analysis: Huntley wasn't listed with an injury designation when the Eagles waived him Tuesday, so it appears that he's recovered from the ribs issue that limited him during the preseason. The 23-year-old return man will look to continue developing as part of the scout team.

Waived by Philly

The Eagles waived Huntley (ribs) on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Huntley injured his ribs during the Eagles' first preseason contest against the Steelers and has been listed as day-to-day since. The 23-year-old appeared in five games for the Eagles last year, recording five carries for 19 yards. His versatility as a return man could warrant him some attention on waivers, but he is likely to land on a practice squad somewhere.

Injures ribs, listed as day-to-day

Huntley is listed as day-to-day with a ribs injury, Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com reports.

Analysis: Huntley evidently injured his ribs during Thursday's preseason loss to the Eagles, but the second-year back still managed to touch the ball five times, not including a 30-yard run that was called back due to penalty. The fact that he's listed as day-to-day is certainly a good sign as he competes with a number of other backs for one of the team's final roster spots.

Leads team in carries and yards

Huntley's performance in Thursday's preseason loss to the Steelers seems to have given him an advantage in pursuit of one of the Eagles' final running back roster spots, E.J. Smith of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Analysis: Huntley carried the ball four times for 15 yards and caught one of three targets for four yards in Thursday's 24-16 preseason loss to the Steelers. He returned a kick 35-yards and also had a 30-yard run called back due to penalty. The 23-year-old has garnered praise for the strides he's made in camp thus far, showcasing his playmaking ability and improvement as a pass blocker. He's battling Jordan Howard and rookie Kenneth Gainwell for one of two likely places on the team.

Standing out in camp

Huntley has shown great improvement over his rookie season so far in camp, Mike Kaye of NJ.com reports.

Analysis: Huntley has flashed his trademark speed in practice and has apparently made a fan of quarterback Jalen Hurts. Fellow running back (and competitor for a roster spot) Kerryon Johnson raved about the 23-year-old's development in pass protection drills, as well. The New Mexico State product also boasts ability in the return game and could carve out a niche for himself there. He still has an uphill battle with Johnson, Kenneth Gainwell, and Jordan Howard for one of two roster spots behind Miles Sanders and Boston Scott, however.

Gets into five games in 2020

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.

Logs full practice Wednesday

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 .

Dec 23, 2020 3:53 PM EST

Ruled out for Week 15

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.

Dec 19, 2020 9:26 AM EST

Sitting out Sunday

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.

Sitting out Sunday

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.

Sep 20, 2020 9:04 AM EST

Gets just one snap in loss

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.

Latches on with Philadelphia

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.

Shockingly let go

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.

Impressing between the tackles

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.
