Eagles release CB Hughes

Posted: September 09, 2013

The Eagles released cornerback Brandon Hughes on Saturday, one day after Hughes was officially declared out for Monday's game against the Washington Redskins with a fractured hand.

Hughes, in his fourth season with the Eagles, is a vested veteran, so his salary of $630,000 for the season would be guaranteed if he were on the roster for Week 1. It is possible that the team will re-sign Hughes after Monday, when he can rejoin the team and the team would have financial flexibility with him if they want to make a transaction later in the season.

The Eagles will play Monday's game with 52 players on the roster, and they can activate 46.
