Nine-year veteran DE/LB Rosevelt Colvin and RB Marcel Shipp were among 21 players released by the Houston Texans on Friday in an attempt to reduce the roster to the NFL-mandated 53 players.

In addition to Colvin, the Texans released FB Jon Abbate, QBs Shane Boyd and Alex Brink, LBs Kevis Coley and Ben Moffitt, S Glenn Earl, C Greg Eslinger, CBs Jamar Fletcher, Dexter Wynn and Derrick Roberson, TE Ryan Krause, DTs Gabe Long and Anthony Maddox, WRs LeRon McCoy, Darnell Jenkins and Mark Simmons, DE Jesse Nading, RB Darius Walker and T Torrin Tucker.

Colvin was signed by the Texans in the offseason following five injury-filled seasons with the New England Patriots.

The Texans have one more player to release in order to reach the 53-man limit by 6 p.m. ET on Saturday.
