Former Houston Texans coach Gary Kubiak had no issue with his players rolling around on Segways but new head coach Bill O'Brien has stamped his authority by saying no more to the transportation devices.

Arian Foster who is currently absent from team OTA's over contract issues was notorious for bowling around the Texans complex on a Segway but the two-wheeled scooters have been outlawed by coach O'Brien.

Foster enjoyed his means of transportation so much that he bought each one of his offensive linesman one for Christmas to thank them for their fantastic blocking throughout the football season.

Left Tackle Duane Brown was very pleased with the present from his teammate and took to Twitter back in December 2012 to thank Foster, he said: "Shoutout to my dawg Arian Foster hookin the O-Line up with Segways for Christmas!!! @ Reliant Stadium."

However Segways will be a thing of the past for the Texans after O'Brien's stand, when asked about it by reporters on Thursday, he responded jokingly: "We go in the locker room. They put their stuff on, they grab their helmet, they walk out the door, they go right down to the right and they walk over that bridge over the highway and then get to the practice field and we start practicing,"

The head coach explaining how his players really have no need for the 'scooters', but what do you believe, is there any harm in allowing this Segways around the franchise?
