The Texans dropped four players off of their 90-man roster on Monday.
Miller tore his ACL in Saturday night’s game against the Cowboys and Steinmetz broke his ankle in practice last week.
The team also announced that they have waived cornerbacks Deante Burton and Derrick Jones. Jones was waived with an injury designation. Jones signed with the team last week while Burton appeared in two games for Houston after being claimed off of waivers last season.
The moves give the Texans a head start on the moves needed to drop to 53 players by Saturday afternoon’s deadline.
