Simone Biles’ boyfriend Jonathan Owens has been cut from the Texans.
The 26-year-old safety was part of the last round of NFL cuts on Tuesday as teams trimmed their rosters to 53 players.
He was one of 24 cuts made by Houston before the 4 pm deadline.
Owens could still be named to the Texans’ practice squad, where he has spent much of the last two seasons. The Missouri Western product played in six games last season, and one game during the 2019 season.
Biles and Owens have not publicly commented on his release.
Upon returning from the Tokyo Olympics in early August, Biles headed straight to Houston to support Owens at training camp. She shared a number of photos and videos cheering him on from the sidelines at the time.
Tuesday’s news came two days after the four-time Olympic gold medalist also visited Owens at the Texans facility, where the couple snapped photos of them kissing.
“Watching #36 on game days is my favorite,” Biles captioned an Instagram post on Monday.
On Saturday, Biles acknowledged the couple’s one-year anniversary in a separate post on Instagram, writing, “Oops I forgot to tell y’all that we’ve been dating for more than a year.”
She joked, “So happy past 1 year to the best thing that’s ever happened to you: ME.”
