Texans Boot Three Players for Marijuana Use

The Houston Texans cut three players because of alleged marijuana use on Monday.

Three Houston Texan rookie allegedly caught with a blunt in a hotel room in Kansas City on Saturday and benched for Sunday's game against the Chiefs (Houston lost 17-16) were cut by Coach Gary Kubiak on Monday.

The players are LBs Sam Montgomery and Willie Jefferson, and RB Cierre Wood. All three had hardly played for the 2-5 Texans this season.

Montgomery claims he walked into a room where Jefferson and Wood were smoking a cigar. Jefferson's agent Chad Cannon, who says it wasn't marijuana they were inhaling, is considering filing a grievance with the league.

"I've got five months of work invested in those three young men and made a decision today to move forward," Kubiak stated.

Marijuana use is rampant in the NFL. A large number of players have already been suspended this season for being busted or failing a drug test for pot
