The agent for Browns defensive lineman John Hughes told reporters Thursday that his client will be back with the Browns soon.

He is going to be fine and expects to return to the team soon,” agent Vince Calo said.

Hughes has been away from the team for more than a week. Browns Coach Hue Jackson has said only that Hughes has been away for personal reasons.

Assuming all is eventually well, Hughes will be a starting defensive end for the Browns. A fifth-year pro, Hughes played in all 16 games and started three last season. He has 5.5 career sacks and has played in 52 career games.

The Browns drafted Hughes in the third round in 2012.
