Pagano said Maveah Alice Hughes, the daughter of Hughes and his girlfriend, Leigh Burton, died last week.
“I can't imagine,” Pagano said. “No parent should have to bury a child. We all go through circumstances. This is an extremely, extremely difficult time for Montori and his family. But we've got his back and we'll get through this thing as a family like we get through anything."
Hughes had been working as Josh Chapman’s backup at defensive tackle.
