The summer signing from Reading suffered a fractured cheekbone during Saturday's 3-1 win over Southampton.
Hughes picked up the knock after being kicked in the face by Neil McCann and he was forced off.
It is likely that Hughes will be out of action for up to six weeks and means he will miss the busy festive period for Norwich.
"Andy got a kick in the face and has fractured his cheekbone," said Norwich boss Nigel Worthington.
"He is going to be out for a period of time. How long that will be I am not clear on as yet, but it will certainly be a little while."
