The Texans’ Monday night release of longtime right tackle Eric Winston caught a lot of folks by surprise.

FOX Sports’ Alex Marvez reports that the Texans cut Winston with a “failed physical” designation.

Per Marvez, Winston underwent arthroscopic ankle surgery in February. He anticipates receiving full medical clearance in two weeks, and has already begun scheduling visits.

Winston visited the Dolphins on Tuesday night.

Florio has reported that Winston also plans to visit the St. Louis Rams and Kansas City Chiefs.

    Classy?? The classiest! Send him to the Chi, plenty healthy to protect the Cut. Listened to him on the radio everyday in Houston, smart cat, positive dude, good addition to ANY team. Here’s to toasting him landing in a good spot. Keep your head up E, you’ll be pancaking kids again before you know it!

    He also failed the physical for not having a neck.
