The Texans will be down to Tuesday’s 3 p.m., NFL-mandated 80-man roster by waiving eight players, placing four on injured reserve and signing two veterans, according to the Houston Chronicle’s John McClain.

The Texans are waiving cornerback Antwaun Molden, safety Antonio Baker, punter Brett Hartmann, safety Maurice Rolle, cornerback Jason Teague, linebacker Matt Marcorelle, guard Darius Morris and receiver Paul Williams.

Being placed on injured reserve are receivers Devard Darling and Lestar Jean and guards Kasey Studdard and Shelley Smith.

The toughest cuts will obviously come Friday when the Texans must get down to the 53-man roster following the final preseason game Thursday night at Minnesota.

The Texans also apparently are making the move most expected by bringing in a veteran receiver in Bryant Johnson and veteran guard Andrew Gardner, according to the Chronicle. None of the receivers in camp were consistent enough to fill the fourth and fifth receiver roles so coach Gary Kubiak has said all along he would likely look for a veteran once teams starting making cuts. The Texans also have a big need at guard after a rash of injuries at that position.
