The Texans cut three players from the roster Monday for violating team rules.

Those players are running back Cierre Wood, linebacker Willie Jefferson and defensive end Sam Montgomery.

ESPN reports the three were released for smoking marijuana while on the trip to Kansas City, although Jefferson claims he was only smoking a cigar.
