The Houston Texans believed that running back Cierre Wood was on drugs before the team released him.

On Wed. night, it was reported that Wood passed a drug test after he was released. The team thought Wood and two other teammates were using marijuana.

“I won’t discuss team rules and those type of things,” head coach Gary Kubiak said during his Monday news conference. “I’ll make decisions based on a body of work in everything I do. I’ve got five months of work invested in those three young men and made a decision today to move forward.”

It was three weeks ago when the Texans thought Wood, Sam Montgomery, and Willie Jefferson were smoking marijuana at a hotel in Kansas City. While Wood has been cleared, Montgomery and Jefferson insist that they were smoking a non-marijuana cigar.

After being released, Wood has been looking for work. And he has began to work out for other teams with no deal in place, as of yet.

On Tues., Wood visited the struggling Jacksonville Jaguars. He may get another shot in the National Football League, but it may not come this year.

Montgomery has been offered a practice squad spot with the Cincinnati Bengals. He would make less than what he was making with the Texans if he signed the practice squad deal.

With the Texans, Wood had three carries for nine yards.
