Cornerback Brandon Hughes has been placed on short-term injured reserve to make room for Carmichael. When Hughes is fully-recovered from his hamstring injury suffered in the 33-30 loss to the Chargers on Sunday, he will be released.
Hughes, 27, was released as part of the final cuts at the end of training camp. He re-joined the Eagles last week after signing with the club to fill in for the injured Bradley Fletcher who suffered a concussion in the Eagles Week 1 victory over the Redskins.
