Houston (CBS Houston) – A source close to Willie Jefferson has told SportsRadio 610 that no substances were found in regards to Jefferson’s dismissal from the team.

According to the source, Jefferson and at least one other player were smoking a cigar in a hotel bathroom. No one ever entered the room or searched the room and no substances were found.

“They were just smoking cigars, no substances of any kind.” the source told SportsRadio 610. “Willie takes full responsibilities for his actions.”

Jefferson’s agent, Chad Cannon, confirmed to ESPN.com the story we received about the player smoking cigars.

Jefferson was then called down to meet with team officials who told him they ‘knew what he had been doing’, insinuating he had been using a substance. At that point the players were sent home from Kansas City.

ESPN is reporting three unnamed sources saying that the violation that the three players were suspended for was in fact for marijuana use, contrary to Jefferson’s story.

Jefferson does have a past issues with substance abuse. He was dismissed from Baylor after multiple issues.

The source also told SportsRadio 610 Kubiak made the final decision to release Jefferson.

“Rick Smith didn’t make the final call to release him. Kubiak did.”

Gary Kubiak did not shed much light on the incident at his weekly Monday press conference.

“I won’t discuss team rules.” Kubiak said, “I’ve got five months of work invested with those three young men and I’ve made a decision today to move forward.” Kubiak said.

Sam Montgomery has also shared his side of the story. According to CSN Houston, Montgomery told James Palmer “I made a childish mistake,” and added he walked into a hotel room where Jefferson and Wood were smoking a cigar.
