Colts defensive tackle Montori Hughes has taken a leave from the team to deal with a family tragedy.

Coach Chuck Pagano announced on Thursday that Hughes’s three-month old daughter Maveah Alice died last week and that Hughes will be away from the team while dealing with the loss. Pagano said that the little girl had visited practice early in training camp and “she was perfectly fine” before getting ill.

“I can’t imagine. No parent should have to bury a child. We all go through circumstances. This is an extremely, extremely difficult time for Montori and his family. But we’ve got his back and we’ll get through this thing as a family like we get through anything,” Pagano said, via the Indianapolis Star.

We offer our condolences to Hughes and his family as they deal with their loss and hope he can make a successful return to the field when he feels ready to resume his career.

    Packer nation, and especially all of us with children of our own mourn with you. Your daughter would want you to be strong and go on with what you were born to do.

    Condolences to this young man on the loss of his daughter.

    He shouldn’t rush back, should only return when he knows he’s ready. I’m sure the Colts organization feels the same way.

    I’m so sorry. Tears in my eyes. Wow, so hard and sad. Colts, give this man time. He’s gonna need it.
