The Texans made 22 cuts this weekend to get to the 53-man roster limit.
But since they hold the first spot in waiver-claim order and need plenty of help, they’ll likely make many more over the coming days and weeks.
Other than former second-rounder Brandon Harris, there weren’t many surprises among the lot.
The list of the released includes: Kicker Chris Boswell, tight end Zach Potter, safety Jawanza Starling, fullback Toben Opurum, wide receiver Travis Labhart, tackle Mike Farrell, outside linebacker Quentin Groves, wide receivers E.Z. Nwachukwu and Lacoltan Bester, guard Alex Kupper, center James Ferentz, tight end Anthony Denham, guard Bronson Irwin, tackle Matt Feiler, nose tackle Ricardo Mathews, inside linebackers Max Bullough and Chris Young, outside linebacker Chris McAllister, cornerback Marcus Williams and defensive ends Keith Browner and Julius Warmsley.
