Several members of the Houston Texans alleged that Tennessee Titans offensive tackle David Stewart played "dirty" on Sunday, claiming that, among other things, he pulled on linebacker Brooks Reed’s hair.

The Houston Chronicle rounded up reactions from the Texans' defense. First, from defensive end Antonio Smith:

“I saw some things I’ve never seen before. I saw him try to pull [Reed’s] hair out, tried to ride somebody’s back, which I thought was kind of funny, actually.”

Next, from outside linebacker Connor Barwin:

“Everybody will say it — he’s a dirty player. He threw a punch at me. He threw a punch at Brooks [Reed].”

Safety Danieal Manning, meanwhile, said he saw Stewart "knee" cornerback Johnathan Joseph:

“One play, I saw J-Joe [ Joseph] making a tackle, and [Stewart] was around the pile, and he was trying to help [running back] Chris Johnson up,” said safety Danieal Manning. “J-Joe was down. He was kneeing J-Joe, and I said, ‘This guy’s crazy.'"
The Texans blew out the Titans 38-14 in the contest, pushing their record to a perfect 4-0. The Titans, meanwhile, fell to 1-3.
