Hughes was waived by the Chiefs on Friday, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports. Hughes was primarily getting second- and third-team reps as the backup nose tackle. His spot will be filled by the recently signed Roy Miller.
Hughes signed a reserve/future contract with the Chiefs on Monday, Terez A. Paylor of the team's official site reports. Hughes, a former fifth-round selection by the Colts in 2013, appeared in two games for the Giants last season before getting released in October. Although he boasts a monstrous 6-4, 350-pound frame, his lack of production as a pro dampens his appeal as a reserve defensive lineman.
Hughes (coach's decision) is inactive for the Giants' Week 2 game against the Saints. Hughes is not injured and appears to simply be a healthy scratch this week.
The Colts parted ways with WR Duron Carter, DL Josh Chapman and DT Montori Hughes on Saturday, the team announced.
The Colts ruled the following players inactive for Sunday's game at Dallas: wideout T.Y. Hilton (hamstring), defensive back Jalil Brown, defensive back Sheldon Price, guard Hugh Thornton, guard Joe Reitz, guard Gosder Cherilus and nose tackle Montori Hughes.
