NEWS: Browns awarded TE Ryan Taylor via waivers and placed DL John Hughes on injured reserve - designated for return— Cleveland Browns (@Browns) October 27, 2014
Given that Hughes was placed on injured reserve - designated for return, he won't be able to return for eight weeks. That means that he'll be eligible to return for the season finale in Baltimore.
The Browns have been decimated by injuries on the defensive line, so this news is certainly not good. Hughes had recently been playing well.
To fill the vacant roster spot, TE Ryan Taylor was claimed off waivers from Baltimore. Taylor is in his 4th season after being drafted in the 7th round by the Packers in 2011. He has 8 career receptions for 45 yards, and a touchdown through 50 games.
