Here's the latest on the Houston Texans' efforts toward getting down to 53 players by tomorrow's deadline. Read and chime in on Battle Red Blog's updated cut list.
At this point of the day, we know your Houston Texans have released five (5) of the twenty-two (22) players necessary to get down to the 53-man roster limit. Rick Smith told us the team would make most of their cuts today, but the Texans do have until tomorrow at 3 p.m. CDT to officially trim the roster to 53. It remains to be seen whether more cuts are coming today, though we do have the following bread crumbs to follow toward roster enlightenment:
Looks like only 3 tight ends for the #Texans' 53. They'd like to keep Anthony Denham for the practice squad.— Tania Ganguli (@taniaganguli) August 29, 2014
Also hearing #Texans plan to keep Ronnie Brown. He'll be a good influence on the younger running backs, which is why I had him in my 53.— Tania Ganguli (@taniaganguli) August 29, 2014
Keshawn Martin will be the #Texans return man to start the season.— Dave Zangaro (@DZangaro) August 29, 2014
Bill O'Brien when asked bout how tough it is to bring N another QB @this point: "Very difficult to bring a guy in & get him ready in 1 week"— Mark Berman (@MarkBermanFox26) August 29, 2014
