08/13/13 - NT/DT Montori Hughes (stinger) was hurt in the Buffalo preseason opener. He needs to regain some strength and will be day-to-day.
04/28/13 - A closer look at the Colts' picks: Round 5/139 - Montori Hughes, DT/NT, 6-4, 329, Tennessee-Martin...The Colts traded a fourth-round pick in the 2014 draft to Cleveland for the opportunity to select Hughes.

03/28/13 - 2013 Tennessee Pro Day: All 32 NFL teams sent representatives to Wednesday’s pro day at the University of Tennessee, where wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson and quarterback Tyler Bray were the big attractions. On the other side of the ball, defensive lineman Montori Hughes (6-4 1/2, 338) posted a 4.87 short shuttle, 7.70 three-cone, and looked very strong in position drills.

02/20/13 - 2013 NFL Combine, Most to gain: With so many highly regarded defensive tackles in this year's draft class, separating themselves at the Combine is going to take an extraordinary effort. Prospects considered lower round talents who prove themselves otherwise, however, could prove the biggest risers.
One such player who could boost his stock is Tennessee-Martin's Montori Hughes, a Tennessee transfer who impressed when not sidelined with a foot injury during Senior Bowl practices. He showed not only impressive strength but athleticism in Mobile, which could result in some impressive workout results for the 6-4, 328-pound defender. Should he get a clean bill of health and provide teams with the answers they're looking for about his dismissal at Tennessee, Hughes could creep into the second day of the draft. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
01/21/13 - 2013 Senior Bowl, Monday Practice: Unfortunately, for all of the positivity that came from the first Senior Bowl practice of 2013, the game appeared to end before it even began for Tennessee-Martin defensive tackle Montori Hughes. He was wearing his No. 54 jersey and followed the defensive linemen wherever they went but was wearing a walking boot on his left foot and, as such, never saw any action. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
