Carves out role to end 2023

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-17

Hughes finished 2023 with 21 tackles (14 solo) and one pass defense in 15 appearances. He also recorded 46 kick-return yards and 67 punt-return yards.

Hughes signed a two-deal deal with the Falcons last offseason after a strong campaign with Detroit. He operated primarily as a return man to open 2023, but he slowly relinquished those duties to Dee Alford and started to carve out a defensive role. Hughes is under contract for one more season and figures to garner a similar role in 2024, though Atlanta may look to revamp its cornerback room behind A.J. Terrell this offseason.

Hughes (hand) is active for Sunday's game against Buccaneers, Tori McElhaney of the Falcons' official site reports.

The cornerback missed the Falcons' Week 13 win over the Jets but practiced throughout the week leading up to this game. Hughes should step into a bigger role with Jeff Okudah out with an ankle injury.

Could play Week 14

Hughes (hand) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

The 26-year-old joins both A.J. Terrell (concussion) and Jeff Okudah (ankle) in being listed as questionable for Sunday's affair, meaning Atlanta could be without three of its top four cornerbacks. Hughes was able to record a full week of practice though, so he'll likely return to the field after missing the Falcons' Week 13 contest.

Logs full practice Wednesday
