Hughes logged five tackles during Sunday's win over his former team, the Colts.

EDGE Analysis

Hughes played 48 of 71 defensive snaps, which has become roughly the norm as the Bills take him off the field in certain run situations. The five-tackle game represents Hughes' season high, and while his 37 tackles over 13 games is decent for a defensive end, the 3.0 sacks is disappointing for a guy that many assumed would make a run at double digits.

Hughes (shin) is active for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hughes avoided missing his first game since the 2011 season, and he'll slot back into his top defensive end role. However, Philip Rivers has been a tough man to sack this season, ranking third in the league in sack percentage (3.29 percent). Hughes hasn't had a sack in five weeks either, making him an unfavorable IDP option in Week 11.

Hughes (shin) practiced on a limited basis for the second straight day Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Bills seem to be leaning toward Hughes playing, though the team's inability to get to the quarterback lately -- just one sack over the last three games -- and the late-afternoon start might have you looking elsewhere for a Week 11 IDP option.

Hughes, who left Sunday's game with a shin injury, practiced on a limited basis Thursday after missing Wednesday's practice, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. "He did good. He moved well, better than I originally thought going into practice, so it's a good sign," coach Sean McDermott said.

EDGE Analysis

It sounds like the Bills might have their best pass rusher on hand this week against the Chargers, something they'll need after being completely stomped the last two games.

Hughes, who let Sunday's game early due to a shin injury, was unable to practice Wednesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

We'll see if the veteran is able to get back out there Thursday or Friday, as coach Sean McDermott has called it a day-to-day injury. The Bills have just one sack over the past three games and a mere 14 on the season, so trying to get a pass rush going without their best pass rusher could prove difficult.

Bills coach Sean McDermott said Monday that Hughes is day-to-day after suffering a shin injury during Sunday's blowout loss to the Saints, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Possibly following the successful lead of another AFC East coach, McDermott has gotten pretty generic with his injury discussions, with the day-to-day label being thrown around with most of his injured players, some who end up sitting for weeks. We'll know more about Hughes once Wednesday's practice session rolls around, while his 3.0 sacks through nine games is a disappointment for a guy who was supposed to thrive in McDermott and Leslie Frazier's new defense.

Hughes suffered a shin injury and is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Saints, Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hughes has been an iron man, having not missed a game since 2011. He continues playing well, with 24 tackles (13 solo) and three sacks this season, but if he's unable to return, Ryan Davis will fulfill Hughes' duties.

Hughes racked up three solo tackles, a sack and a forced fumble Sunday against the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

Hughes forced a fumble that was then picked up by Tre'Davious White and returned 52 yards for a touchdown. The 29-year-old's performance proved vital in the six-point win, and his 73 percent of defensive snaps bodes well for long-term success. The Bills have a favorable matchup against a porous Bengals' offensive line in Week 5, so Hughes could be due for a big week.

Hughes posted a big game during Sunday's loss to the Panthers, sacking Cam Newton twice and logging six total tackles on the day.

EDGE Analysis

Hughes has looked like a good fit for Sean McDermott's new 4-3 defense from the day they instituted it. He posted back-to-back 10-sack seasons when the Bills used to run a 4-3, then struggled -- like a lot of his teammates did -- in Rex Ryan's defense the last two seasons, posting 5.0 and 6.0 sacks, respectively. Based on the way Hughes has put pressure on the quarterback the first two games, it's looking like he'll end up being a sneaky IDP choice.

Hughes, who spent much of his time as a linebacker in Rex Ryan's defense the past two seasons, is expected to shift back to end for new coach Sean McDermott, BuffaloBills.com reports. "Both of those guys are great players. We look forward to working with them," McDermott said of Hughes and Shaq Lawson this week. "Dynamic players coming off the football and they should fit our system well."

EDGE Analysis

While Hughes' tackle totals have been incredibly consistent in his four seasons with the Bills, staying within the 46-53 range all four seasons, he was a far better sack specialist when he was in Buffalo's 4-3 defense in 2013 and 2014, when he totaled 20 sacks compared to just 11 in two seasons under Ryan. McDermott is also known for being able to put pressure on opposing offenses from his Carolina days. All this spells good news for Hughes' IDP value.
