It's been a tough season for the Texans, not only on the field but off of it. On Tuesday, they cut their big free agent signing, Ed Reed. Now, they're dealing with a new controversy involving their first-round draft pick.

It has to do with a sexually-explicit video that was posted on DeAndre Hopkins' Instagram account.

Shortly after that video was posted, it was removed and a woman claiming to be Hopkins' girlfriend posted a message that said Hopkins' account had been hacked. That message read in part "This is his girlfriend. He's in meetings with no phone. Have some respect people."

Hopkins denied sending the explicit video, saying his account was hacked.

"I had a pretty simple Instagram password," he said.

When asked what he's going to do differently, Hopkins replied, "Make a harder password, first of all. That's the only thing I can do to prevent another situation like this."
