By 3 p.m. CDT today, every NFL team must reduce the size of its roster to 53 players. We started tracking the Texans’ roster cuts yesterday; by my (liberal arts major) count, news of the Texans releasing 26 players (counting Chris Thompson’s release on Tuesday) has already broken as of the time I’m writing this post late Friday night.

So far the Texans have cut:

—DE Nick Thurman

—OL Roderick Johnson

—CB Dee Virgin

—FB Jay Prosch

—LB Kennan Gilchrist

—LB Josh Keyes

—OL David Quessenberry

—WR Braxton Miller

—TE Stephen Anderson

—S Corey Moore

—OT Jaryd Jones-Smith

—RB Lavon Coleman

—K Nick Rose

—DB Treston Decoud

—OT Anthony Coyle

—CB Andre Chachere

—DL Kingsley Opara

—RB Terry Swanson

—TE Matt Lengel

—TE Jevoni Robinson

—P Shane Lechler

—CB Bryce Jones

—OLB LaTroy Lewis

—WR Jester Weah

—DE Nick Thurman

—G/T Chade Slade

—C/G Kyle Fuller

—Andre Hal and D’Onta Foreman Placed On PUP

We’ll continue following the Texans’ cuts here as they make their way toward finalizing their initial 53-man roster for the 2018 regular season. Once that’s confirmed, we’ll turn our attention to the team formulating its practice squad.

With that, the floor is yours.

UPDATE: We have our first news of the morning, with Jevoni Robinson waived.

Same with tight end Matt Lengel.

UPDATE: Cuts Are Official
