The Houston Texans football team has released the backup quarterback Ryan Mallett from the squad.

Mallett was late to meetings this past Saturday and also missed the team’s flight to Florida on Sunday. After missing his flight and flying alone separately to the game against the Dolphins, he wasn’t allowed to play.
