Cut Week is here.

By 4pm ET tomorrow, all 32 NFL teams must reduce their rosters from the 90-man cap that has been in place since the NFL new year began back in early March to a 75-man cap.

On Thursday night, every team will conclude their preseason.

By 4pm ET on Saturday, we’ll get the final 53-man rosters for every team for Week 1 of the 2016 Regular Season.

Here, we’ll be tracking those initial reductions to get down to 75 with the Rams set to announce the full list of cuts later today:

K Taylor Bertolet - Waived

Greg Zuerlein’s still getting his last shot. Berto had no real chance.

Roster preview chances at 53-man roster: 1/10

TE Benson Browne - Waived

Browne came in late as a camp body.

Roster preview chances at 53-man roster: 1/10

S Michael Caputo - Waived

Caputo also was just around for camp.

Roster preview chances at 53-man roster: N/A

D Zach Colvin - Waived

Colvin also was just around for THEME!

DE Quinton Coples - Contract terminated

As reported by NFL Network’s Rand Getlin. A bit of a surprise for this round, but it does make sense. This opens up room for younger options to get more snaps this week both in practice and in the preseason finale. If anything, it’s an expanded chance for both DEs Matt Longacre and Ian Seau to make the final roster.

Roster preview chances at 53-man roster: 8.5/10

OL Brian Folkerts - Contract terminated

Folkerts was signed late last year to bolster an ailing offensive line. With the full OL depth chart back healthy, he’s an expandable quantity.

Roster preview chances at 53-man roster: 5/10

LB Darreon Herring - Waived

Herring couldn’t sort through the depth at LB.

Roster preview chances at 53-man roster: 1/10

FB Zach Laskey - Waived/Injured

Here’s perhaps the one surprise. Does Laskey’s exit suggest something about the fullback slot for the Rams in 2016 (see: Cory Harkey)?

Roster preview chances at 53-man roster: 0/10

S Jordan Lomax - Waived/Injured

Lomax lost the battle with the safety position pretty backed up.

Roster preview chances at 53-man roster: 4/10

WR Marquez North - Waived/Injured

The Tennessee wideout has been hampered by injury for a bit.

Roster preview chances at 53-man roster: 2.5/10

LS Jeff Overbaugh - Waived

Now is when we lament the lowly descent of the noble profession of snapping.

Roster preview chances at 53-man roster: N/A

WR David Richards - Waived

Richards was the au pair filtered in with WR Austin Hill.

Hill made it to the next round (HELLO, HARD KNOCKS CAMERAS). Richards did not.

Roster preview chances at 53-man roster: N/A

TE Jake Stoneburner - Contract terminated

Best of luck, Stoney.

Roster preview chances at 53-man roster: N/A

OL Jordan Swindle - Waived

Swindle never had a real shot with the 2015 Rams Week 1 offensive line returning intact.

Roster preview chances at 53-man roster: 3/10

QB Dylan Thompson - Waived

Thompson confirmed his release on Twitter late last night. Thompson, a South Carolina grad who spent 2015 with the San Francisco 49ers, was a summer addition to the Rams’ QB depth chart.
