Undrafted rookie wide receiver Dwight Jones missed Tuesday's organized team activity with the Houston Texans.

Jones' absence came amid online reports that he had quit the team. Texans head coach Gary Kubiak did not provide details on Jones' status with the team after Tuesday's practice.

Kubiak says Jones is ''a young man with a lot of information (being thrown) at him.''

Kubiak says Jones is ''struggling a bit today, and we'll talk to him this afternoon and see where we're at.''

Jones, a 6-3, 230-pound receiver from North Carolina, drew radio criticism several weeks ago after joking that he could be the ''next Andre Johnson.''
