The Texans' preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys has been canceled so the Texans can return to their families in flood-ravaged Houston.
Texans' GM Rick Smith said the team's Week 1 game will be played NRG Stadium in Houston, as scheduled.
"We've got several members of our travel party - our coaches, our players, our staff members - whose families have been evacuated", general manager Rick Smith said. All proceeds from the game were set to go toward Harvey relief. Otherwise, that money will still go toward storm relief.
"I think we have the best fans, anyway, so just imagine what NRG Stadium will be like for that first home game". "I said it a couple days ago, but this is bigger than football".
With the cancellation, the Texans will now get to go home and be with their families after being away for almost a week. The team feels it is imperative to get back home to help the Houston community recover from devastation of Hurricane Harvey. "Right now, I'm excited that they can get home".
"The Houston Texans sincerely appreciate the support shown by the Dallas Cowboys and our National Football League family during this hard time".
