Vikings' Mike Hughes: Should be ready for OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Mike Zimmer said Hughes (neck) is expected to be ready for the offseason program, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Hughes missed both postseason games, and for the second time in his two-year career, he ended the season on injured reserve. The Vikings' offseason program is set to begin in late April, and Hughes could be in line for a hefty role in 2020 if the team doesn't re-sign Trae Waynes. Hughes finished the 2019 campaign with 45 tackles (39 solo), nine pass breakups and an interception over 14 games.

Vikings' Mike Hughes: Hits injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Vikings placed Hughes (neck) on inured reserve Friday.

Hughes appears to have sustained a neck injury during Thursday's practice, during which he was limited. In a corresponding move to the 2018 first-round pick's placement on IR, the Vikings re-signed Marcus Sherels. Hughes wraps up the season with 45 tackles (39 solo), nine defended passes, one interception and one forced fumble across 14 contests. He also contributed as a punt returner.

Vikings' Mike Hughes: Limited in Thursday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes was limited in Thursday's practice due to a neck injury.

Hughes practiced without restrictions Wednesday, so Thursday's limited session represents a minor step in the wrong direction. Of course, there's not yet any reason to worry about his availability for Sunday's playoff contest in New Orleans.

Vikings' Mike Hughes: Good to go Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes (oblique) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Hughes suffered the oblique injury during last Sunday's win over the Lions, but he was able to practice this week and avoid an injury designation. The 22-year-old should serve his usual role as a rotational defensive back and punt returner in Los Angeles.

Vikings' Mike Hughes: Sidelined Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes (oblique) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Lions, Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

It's unclear how Hughes picked up the injury, but he was forced to leave the game in the fourth quarter. He now joins fellow cornerback Xavier Rhodes (ankle) on the sideline, and that leaves Mackensie Alexander and Holton Hill to see an increase in snaps.

Vikings' Mike Hughes: Starting against Cowboys
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes will start at cornerback Sunday against the Cowboys since Trae Waynes (personal) is inactive.

This is a huge opportunity for Hughes. He had lofty expectations after being selected in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft, but Hughes tore his ACL during his sixth pro game. He and Xavier Rhodes will be tasked with shutting down Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup in this prime-time matchup.

Vikings' Mike Hughes: Sheds injury tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes (knee) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Hughes was limited in Thursday's practice due to a knee issue, but he already appears back to full health. With Trae Waynes (ankle) listed as questionable, Hughes could be in line for an expanded role in Minnesota's secondary during Sunday's tilt against the Cowboys.

Vikings' Mike Hughes: Limited Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes was limited in Thursday's practice due to a knee injury.

Hughes wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, indicating that his knee issue may have been sustained during weekly practices. The second-year pro will have one more opportunity to practice in full ahead of Sunday's tilt against the Cowboys.

Vikings' Mike Hughes: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes (knee) is officially listed as active for Sunday's game against Oakland.

Hughes will make is return after suffering an ACL tear last October, and it's unclear if he'll be on a snap count for the game. The 2018 first-round pick is expected to sport a knee brace for the game but could ditch it depending on word from the Vikings' medical staff. Hughes appears likely in line for a nickel-based role as the team looks to ease him back into action.

Vikings' Mike Hughes: Given green light
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes (knee) is expected to play Sunday against Oakland, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Hughes plans to wear a brace in his first game back since tearing his ACL last October, but he could ditch it depending on how he and the Vikings' medical staff feel after Sunday's contest. For now, don't expect him to play a major role against the Raiders. Hughes will likely feature in nickel-based coverages as Minnesota looks to ease him back into action.

Vikings' Mike Hughes: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Hughes appears to be nearing a return to full health after being limited to six games in his rookie season due to a torn ACL. The 22-year-old will play a key role in the Vikings' secondary if he's able to suit up versus Oakland.

Vikings' Mike Hughes: Could play Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes (knee) could suit up for Sunday's game against the Raiders, Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press reports.

Hughes was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. Coach Mike Zimmer called him "a full go," per Tomasson. The 2018 first-round pick appears to be closing in on a complete recovery from the torn ACL that limited him to six contests as a rookie. If Hughes is able to suit up, he'll play a key role in Minnesota's secondary.

Vikings' Mike Hughes: Still hampered by injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes (knee) won't play in Sunday's tilt against Green Bay.

Hughes was a long-shot to play anyways, so his absence won't come as a surprise. The 22-year-old is still trying to recover from a torn ACL he suffered last season, and now that he's officially out, Kris Boyd and Mark Fields are likely to fill in.

September 13, 2019 02:00 PM
Vikings' Mike Hughes: Doubtful to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes (knee) is considered doubtful for Sunday's clash with Green Bay.

Hughes missed the season opener with this injury as well. The 22-year-old is trying to bounce back from an ACL tear that limited his rookie season to just six games. If he ultimately can't suit up Sunday, Kris Boyd and Mark Fields would likely fill in.

Vikings' Mike Hughes: Will miss Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes (knee) has been ruled out of Sunday's season opener against Atlanta.

Hughes was a limited participant in each practice this week. The 22-year-old is trying to bounce back from an ACL tear that limited his rookie season to just six games. Hughes figures to see a rotational role in Minnesota's secondary this season when healthy. For now, Kris Boyd and Mark Fields seem to be candidates to see extra work.

Vikings' Mike Hughes: Limited in practice again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes (knee) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

Hughes is coming off an ACL tear that limited his rookie season to six games and has now logged two consecutive limited practices. Though the second-year cornerback appears to be trending towards sitting out Week 1 versus the Falcons, he's making positive progress in his recovery.

Vikings' Mike Hughes: Practicing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes (knee) returned to practice in a limited fashion Wednesday, Mark Craig of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Hughes showed promise in his first six games as a rookie last year, but it ended in disappointment when he tore his ACL in Week 6 versus the Cardinals. Since the injury happened early in the 2018 season, Hughes had extra recovery time and the Vikings left him off the PUP list, meaning he can play within the first six games. While that time likely isn't Week 1 versus the Falcons, Hughes is clearly trending in the right direction.

Vikings' Mike Hughes: Taken off PUP list, still not ready
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes (knee) was removed from Minnesota's PUP list Monday, but Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune notes that he isn't ready to return to practice yet.

While Hughes is no longer on the PUP and is now allowed to practice, he isn't physically ready to return. As Krammer reports, the move indicates that the 22-year-old will be ready to return sometime after the season opener but before Week 7. If Hughes were to remain on the PUP list, he would have to miss at least six games. This way, Hughes can return whenever he is ready, which the team believes will be before Week 7.

Vikings' Mike Hughes: Begins camp on PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes, who tore his ACL in Week 6 of last season, was placed on the PUP list to begin training camp. The knee injury that ended Hughes' 2018 season was more extensive than first revealed as head coach Mike Zimmer called it a "multi-ligament" injury, SKOR North reports.

While Zimmer said Hughes is ahead of schedule form last year's year ACL tear, this news makes it seem less likely he'll be ready for the start of the regular season. Hughes appeared to be an impact player in the secondary and in the return game last year as a rookie, but it's not clear how quickly he'll be back to full speed this season.

Vikings' Mike Hughes: Sits out practice Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes (knee) didn't participate in minicamp Tuesday, Chad Graff of The Athletic reports.

Hughes still hasn't been able to participate in offseason work after suffering a torn ACL in mid-October last season. The fact that he's been held out could be a precaution, but at this point, there's no definitive word on his timetable to return. He'll likely continue to work on his own during minicamp until he gains full clearance from team doctors.
