Eagles released CB Brandon Hughes with an injury settlement.

Hughes broke his hand in the preseason, returned to play 22 snaps in Week 2, and then was placed on injured reserve with a hamstring injury last week. Hughes, 27, appeared in 31 games with the Eagles the past four seasons.

Eagles placed CB Brandon Hughes (hamstring) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Hughes played 22 snaps in the Week 2 loss to the Chargers, but he'd normally just be depth when Bradley Fletcher (concussion) is healthy. Hughes' role on the team will be taken by Roc Carmichael, who was signed off the Texans practice squad Wednesday. Hughes will be an unrestricted free agent after the season.

Eagles re-signed CB Brandon Hughes.

Hughes broke his hand in the third preseason game and wasn't going to play in Week 1 anyway. By cutting him and then bringing him back now, the Eagles avoid guaranteeing his salary. Hughes' main contributions will come on special teams.

Eagles released CB Brandon Hughes.

Hughes broke his hand in the third preseason game. He had already been ruled out for the Monday night opener against Washington. Hughes is likely getting waived/injured or receiving some kind of injury settlement.
Sat, Sep 7, 2013 12:26:00 PM

Eagles CB Brandon Hughes suffered a broken hand in Saturday night's preseason game against the Jaguars.

Hughes, 27, is one of the Eagles' top special teams players, and he was also seeing work at corner with CB Curtis Marsh already out with a fractured hand of his own. Hughes appeared in all 16 games last season, making ten tackles.

Eagles signed CB Brandon Hughes to a one-year extension through 2013.

One of Philly's top special teams gunners, Hughes is now signed for $540,000 in 2012 and $630,000 in 2013. He can earn another $500,000 over the course of the deal via performance escalators. Although 26-year-old Hughes is used sparingly on defense, he racked up seven special teams stops in 2011.

Eagles signed CB Brandon Hughes off the Giants' practice squad.

Hughes is being signed for depth at cornerback and special teams with Ellis Hobbs (neck) out for the season.
Tue, Nov 23, 2010 07:21:00 PM

Chargers waived CB Brandon Hughes.

Hughes lost his roster spot to No. 3 QB J.T. O'Sullivan. The 2009 fifth-rounder missed his rookie season with a knee injury, the severity of which was never disclosed. The Bolts are interested in signing him to the practice squad if he clears waivers.
Tue, Sep 7, 2010 05:18:00 PM

Chargers placed CB Brandon Hughes (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season.

The Bolts never revealed the extent of Hughes' injury, but did admit that it was "significant." The fifth-round pick from Oregon State will return to battle for a roster spot in 2010. San Diego has become awfully thin at cornerback.
Tue, Sep 1, 2009 05:47:00 PM

Chargers coach Norv Turner revealed Monday that rookie CB Brandon Hughes is out indefinitely with a "significant" knee injury.

The loss will test San Diego's depth, which worsened after Cletis Gordon's release. A fifth-round pick, Hughes was poised to be the Bolts' No. 4 corner.
Mon, Aug 31, 2009 08:53:00 PM

Chargers signed fifth-round CB Brandon Hughes to a four-year contract.

Hughes, 5'10/182 out of Oregon State, was a two-time second-team All-Pac 10 selection. Lacking high-end speed, Hughes struggles in off-man coverage but does well in bump-and-run. He'll battle for the team's final cornerback spot.
