This Week Outlook
Mike Hughes (neck) didn't participate practice on Friday.
Hughes has not practiced all week and is danger of missing Sunday's Week 3 contest against the Titans. The Vikings defense has struggled this season, but the team could be without their top two corners on Sunday. Keep an eye on the inactive list once it's announced Sunday morning.
Mike Hughes racked up seven solo tackles during Sunday’s 28-24 win over the Dallas Cowboys.
Hughes started for Trae Waynes (personal) and put in a solid effort. He can be left on waivers in most leagues but is worth remembering in deeper dynasty formats as a potential late-season add.
The Minnesota Vikings have placed rookie first-round pick CB Mike Hughes on injured reserve with a torn ACL, suffered during the Vikings' Week 6 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals.
Hughes, one of the best corners in the 2018 draft, was playing well in Minnesota's defense. Opposing offenses might have an easier time picking on his replacement, which will likely be some combination of three players on the active roster: (1) Mackensie Alexander, (2) Jayron Kearse, or (3) rookie Holton Hill.
Mike Hughes is now confirmed to have torn his ACL during Sunday’s game against the Cardinals. He will miss the rest of the season.
Look for Mackensie Alexander and Holton Hill to get more playing time as the main backups for the Vikings cornerbacks. In deeper leagues look at Alexander first prior to picking up Hill or another CB.
Mike Hughes will undergo testing on Monday to determine if he did indeed tear his ACL during Sunday’s 27-17 win over the Arizona Cardinals. Hughes was able to get one tackle before leaving Sunday’s game.
This injury is not good news for Minnesota’s secondary. The until has been dealing with injuries all season and this might leave the Vikings a bit short at cornerback. Look for Mackensie Alexander to get more playing time as the main backup to the staters.
