The Eagles have released defensive back Brandon Hughes. Hugh broke his hand in the Eagles third preseason game.

He was not expected to play in Monday Night Football’s first game of the double header on ESPN. The Eagles face the Washington Redskins on Monday Night at 6:55 pm ET.

Hughes is expected to some kind of injury settlement from the Eagles after getting being placed on waived/injured. He was expected to be one of the Eagles top special teams performers before being injured.

He has been with the Eagles since Andy Reid and his group claimed Hughes off waivers from the New York Giants in November 2010. He played in just 1 game in 2010 for the Eagles, before playing in 13 games in 2011 and all 16 games last year.
