With Warford back at practice, the Saints released veteran guard John Greco and brought back defensive tackle John Hughes, who had been cut on Monday to make room for the signing of Bryce Harris.

Hughes, who has been on and off the New Orleans roster this season, was active against the Chicago Bears two games ago and played 11 snaps, making one tackle. 

Like Chicago, the Buffalo Bills are a run-heavy offense, ranking sixth in the NFL with 250 carries so far, so Hughes might be a factor again on Sunday.
