The Saints placed Hughes (biceps) on injured reserve Wednesday, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. Hughes exited Sunday's victory over the Falcons with what was first believed to be an elbow injury. However, further testing revealed a much worse diagnosis, with the defensive tackle sustaining a torn biceps. Hughes will end the 2017 campaign with 10 tackles over eight appearances. The Saints signed veteran Tony McDaniel to take Hughes' spot on the roster.
Hughes re-signed with the Saints on Wednesday, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. Hughes, who had just been cut by the Saints on Monday, will restock the Saints' depth at defensive tackle. He has made one appearance with the team in 2017, but only saw 11 defensive snaps in that contest.
Hughes re-signed with the Saints on Tuesday, Nick Underhill of The Advocate reports. Hughes was let go by the Saints last Friday but now returns to the team, as they only have three healthy defensive tackles on the roster. Look for the 29-year-old to return to a reserve role on defense.
Hughes agreed to a deal with the Saints on Saturday, Mike Triplett of ESPN reports. Hughes spent four years with the Browns before playing with both them and the Buccaneers last season. He will look to earn a role providing depth at defensive tackle for the Saints. The veteran will be competing against Justin Zimmer, Mitchell Loewen and Ashaad Mabry for the opportunity.
Hughes was signed by the Buccaneers on Tuesday, Roy Cummings of FanRagSports.com reports. Hughes had previously been demoted from the Bucs' active roster on Saturday in order for Donteea Dye to fill in at wide receiver, but he returns to provide depth on the defensive line after the release of safety Major Wright.
