Eagles place Brandon Hughes on short-term injured reserve

The Philadelphia Eagles placed cornerback Brandon Hughes on injured reserve-designated to return as cornerback Roc Carmichael was signed off of the Houston Texans' practice squad.

Hughes is now out at least for eight games.

An injury settlement is regarded as a possibility for Hughes, who was cut during the preseason and then re-signed after Bradley Fletcher suffered a concussion.
