Houston Texans Cut Eleven Players To Reach 75-Man Roster

NFL teams were required to have their 90 man rosters cut down to 75 by Monday afternoon and the Houston Texans cut several players in order to hit that limit, including some rookies and players who were injured.

The end results had the Texans cutting 11 players, putting one on injured reserve, one on the PUP list and allowing two to get waived/injured:

The Texans trimmed their roster from 90 to 75 players by releasing 11, waiving two others who were injured, placing rookie kicker Randy Bullock on injured reserve and placing linebacker Daryl Sharpton on the reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list. The league deadline to reduce rosters to 75 was Monday at 3 p.m. CT.

Also released were center Thomas Austin, inside linebacker Omar Gaither, wide receivers Bryant Johnson and Mario Louis, running back Davin Meggett, defensive end Jimmy Saddler-McQueen and cornerback Torri Williams. Nose tackle Sunny Harris and rookie inside linebacker Greg Williams were waived/injured.

Houston and the rest of the teams in the NFL have to put their rosters down to 53 players by Friday, the final cut of the preseason as they head into the regular season in early September.
