A public official says authorities stopped a Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver for speeding and found a small amount of marijuana and a gun.

The official familiar with the investigation says Josh Huff was stopped on the New Jersey side of the Walt Whitman Bridge while driving back from Philadelphia Tuesday morning.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to release information about the investigation.

It wasn't known if Huff was in custody or if the gun was loaded.

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

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

The bridge connects New Jersey with south Philadelphia, near where the Eagles play and practice.
