Eagles place Brandon Hughes on short-term IR


The Eagles are hurting for secondary help, and made a move Wednesday to address it.

The team announced it was placing cornerback Brandon Hughes on short-term injured reserve, and filling his roster spot by signing Roc Carmichael off the Texans’ practice squad.

Hughes had been part of final cuts, but was brought back when Bradley Fletcher was lost to a concussion. Hughes will be released from IR and become a free agent once he can pass a physical.

The short-term injured reserve is not the same thing as injured reserve with designation for return. The return designation is for players who will miss eight weeks and then return later in the season, but Hughes will be released by the Eagles as soon as he’s healthy.

    You know your team outlook is lousy when you have to pull out the “we weren’t even trying” card. Good one…super original.

    Everyone need to give Logicalidiotsavant positives and he will go away. My guess it is Shanny trolling the boards.

    Are all Redskins fan delusional or is it something in the water?

    Whats next- Dan Snyder is awesome in free agency? (Oops he may sue me!)

    Eagles win big on Thursday night on emotional game in Reid’s and Mcnabb’s return. Vick once again feels under appreciated and him shady and Djax have huge games . This is gonna be Vicks career year. Book it

    Did MOM,
    get you Denver Bronco’s-Direct-TV, for your basement apartment ?

    that’s the only way, you will see a Championship in DC !

    PS. at least Snyder raised tix prices this year,, keep paying more-for-less, and not complain.

    illogical –
    It’s more likely that the coach gets fired than the Racistskins make the playoffs. Should have been fired on the spot for putting RGIII’s career at risk.
