The Houston Texans in the midst of a catastrophic plummet from what most alleged football experts thought was NFL Elite level have made a move to "Shake Things Up".
Coach Gary Kubiak announced Monday afternoon he was cutting 3 rookies for "Violating Team Rules" in the teams Kansas City hotel room. Though he did not specify what those rules were. The Texans played the Chiefs on Sunday, losing 17-16.
The players, RB Cierre Wood, DE Sam Montgomery and OLB Willie Jefferson were not big contributors on the squad, with Wood and Jefferson the only ones seeing any playing time at all. All 3 were inactive in KC.
However, there appears there may be more to this story.
James Palmer of CSN Houston tweeted he spoke to Montgomery who gave an interesting interpretation of the event in question:
Sam Montgomery says he walked into a hotel room where Jefferson & Wood were smoking a cigar. Went to team meetings and was called by Kubiak

This is not something you hear everyday from an NFL team; college maybe, but not pros. The Houston Texans have released three players after some kind of team violation that occurred in the hotel the team stayed at in Kansas City.
Guys getting let go for team violations is generally associated more with college teams than NFL, but that didn't stop Kubiak...
Case Keenum was good, not great against the Chiefs. In Gary Kubiak’s mind he didn’t do enough to win the job.
“Matt’s our starting quarterback,” Kubiak said of the veteran Schaub. “Case played this week.”
Kubiak said he would re-evaulate the position during the Texans’ bye week.
My prayers go out to Brian Cushing because you hate to see bad luck strike a guy in consecutive seasons.

With Matt Schaub injured and unable to play -- and already losing his grip on the starting job anyway -- Keenum could end up starting more than one game sources said with the staff having been eager...
