The main roster total is everyone on the active roster. When you hear about being in compliance with the cap during the off-season, that refers to only the salaries of the top 51 which for the Texans is $67.9 mil.
During the off-season, cap compliance is done based on the 51 highest salaries only to allow teams in tight cap situations like Indy, to bring in additional players to compete for positions.
