After trading for offensive line depth earlier this morning, your Houston Texans have begun cutting players in advance of tomorrow's deadline to trim the roster to 75. I suppose this process actually started on Friday night when the team parted ways with Stevie Brown (who quickly re-signed with the New York Giants), but it's picking up steam now. Aaron Wilson reports that the Texans have severed ties with two more players.

UPDATE (12:46 p.m. CDT): Two more players gone.

Seeing Ankrah cut here is a bit of a surprise. While I didn't necessarily think he'd make the 53-man roster, I did not expect to see him as one of the first players jettisoned. Could be a case of the team wanting to do right by the player to give him as much lead time as possible to line up a job with another team.

UPDATE II (12:53 p.m. CDT): Mark Berman has a few more names.

By my count, if we include Stevie Brown, that's ten (10) players cut and one moved to injured reserve.  I'm a bit shocked that Adams and Bonner didn't even survive the first cut, though Adams' fate was likely sealed with the acquisition of Chris Clark this morning and I didn't count on Bonner making the 53 regardless.

UPDATE III (4:21 p.m. CDT): With one of the greatest punters of all time continuing to make his case for enshrinement in Canton, this was bound to happen.

Four (4) more players still have to be cut by tomorrow at 3 p.m. CDT.

UPDATE IV (1:40 p.m. CDT on 09/01/15): And this should get the Texans down to 75 players.

We'll update this post as news breaks and then have a separate entry summarizing all the moves when the deadline passes. In the meantime, share your roster projections and predictions in the space below.
