ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - Labeled a bust in Indianapolis, defensive end Jerry Hughes is blossoming in Buffalo.
With 10 sacks, Hughes has already doubled the total he had in his first three seasons with the Colts.
He has taken advantage of the fresh start he got in April, when the Bills acquired the 2010 first-round pick in a trade that sent Kelvin Sheppard to Indianapolis. And Hughes has carved out a niche on a defense that has set the franchise record with an NFL-leading 56 sacks entering Buffalo's season finale at New England on Sunday.
Hughes feels relaxed and comfortable in his new surroundings. He credits part of his success to playing on a line that features defensive end Mario Williams and tackles Kyle Williams and Marcell Dareus.
