Runyan said last night on his weekly WIP radio

Runyan missed practice on Friday but was able

After a slog of a start for the Eagles, Josh Huff gave the Philadelphia faithful something to cheer about when he took a kick return 98 yards to the house.

When Angels All-Star outfielder Mike Trout's six-year, $144.5 million contract ends in 2020, the Millville, New Jersey, native will be in his prime at 29 years old, and Phillies' fans dream of seeing Trout playing at Citizens Bank Park could be come true.
For the time being, though, Trout, a season-ticket holder, is just chilling at Lincoln Financial Field as the Eagles play the Vikings on Sunday because the Angels are almost as bad as the Phillies and even he couldn't stay away from Sam Bradford's return to Philadelphia.
