The Texans will finalize their 53-man roster Friday at a 3:30 p.m. CT press conference exclusively on Texans TV.

At 3:30 p.m. CT today, coach Gary Kubiak and general manager Rick Smith will hold a press conference at Reliant Stadium to announce the team's final roster cuts.

Watch the press conference LIVE exclusively on Texans TV.

At the moment, the Texans have 75 players on their active roster. The NFL-mandated roster limit is 53 players, which the team must reach by the deadline Saturday at 4 p.m. ET. Nevertheless, the team doesn't want their personnel decisions to linger.

Last year, the Texans entered the regular season with an active roster consisting of the following positional breakdown (PDF):

The Texans likely will announce their eight-man practice squad on Monday. Some of the players released today might re-join the team in that capacity once they clear waivers.
