This is a difficult week for NFL front offices, as teams have to get their rosters down to 53 men prior to the start of the regular season.

We're already seeing some notable cuts around the league, as the Detroit Lions have released a veteran wide receiver and the Indianapolis Colts have released a veteran defensive back. Several more notable roster cuts are likely coming, too.

Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay took to Twitter on Monday morning to confirm that it's been a difficult process.

"Some difficult decisions being made right now..." he tweeted.

The Colts released veteran defensive back Sean Davis on Monday morning. Davis, a former second round NFL Draft pick, signed with Indianapolis at the start of free agency.

Davis will likely not be the only notable cut by the Colts on Monday.

Indianapolis is currently getting ready for the regular season, which begins on Sunday, Sept. 12. The Colts open the season against the Seahawks. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. E.T. on FOX.
