Former Indianapolis Colts running back Chris Rainey took to Twitter on Thursday during the team's preseason opening loss to the New York Jets to say he was cut for no reason last month. 

Indianapolis released Rainey July 28 for what ESPN's Adam Schefter reported was a violation of team rules. Rainey used social media to explain his case during the 13-10 loss. 

"Yea I'm piss watching the colts game when I should be out there, too. Even tho i didn't break no f----- team rules, not even," Rainey tweeted, via ESPN.com.

Rainey posted another tweet minutes later after running back Daniel Herron scored a touchdown.

"Nice TD Boom even tho u was in the hallway with me that nite when we was horsing around with the fire extinguisher. Man up like I did," Rainey tweeted.

Rainey deleted both tweets.

The 26-year-old running back signed with the Colts as a free agent last November, playing in two games and returning six kickoffs for 131 yards and four punts for 29 yards. 

Rainey was a fifth-round pick by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2012 NFL draft.
