Texans Veterans Disappointed In Three Rookies Who Were Cut


Man sometimes in life you have to make your own decisions, and the right decision.

Cierre Wood is a Houston native, and was getting the chance to play ball for his hometown team in the NFL when he decided to make the same choice this weekend, that cost him games at Notre Dame.

Woods, along with former LSU standout Sam Montgomery, and Willie Jefferson got cut by the Texans on Monday after an incident in the teams hotel got all three sent home before their game against the Chiefs on Sunday.

Texans’ veteran players were disappointed and upset with all three players, but none more than Cierre Wood who could have actually helped the team after both Arian Foster and Ben Tate had to leave the game with injuries.

“Yes, we could have [used Wood],” offensive tackle Duane Brown said, via John McClain of the Houston Chronicle. “It’s very frustrating to have that happen knowing we had a back that was capable of carrying the load for us. It was a big missed opportunity on his part. . . .

“You have to put the team first. It’s very shocking to have that happen. You’re getting ready to play a huge game on the road, and to have [players] sent home is very disappointing and frustrating. Something had to happen. It’s a wake-up call for them and anybody else. You have to be unselfish in this league.”
