Texans-Cowboys preseason game canceled so players can be with families

The Texans were forced to work out at the Dallas Cowboys facility in Frisco on Monday after flooding in the Houston area from Hurricane Harvey

The facility includes an indoor football stadium.

The Texans have been gone from Houston since last Wednesday morning. The decision to cancel Thursday night's game altogether was announced when the Texans said local authorities had found a safe route for the team to drive the 250 miles home.

An estimated 30,000 to 40,000 homes have been destroyed in the Houston area as Hurricane Harvey, now a tropical storm, continues to batter the Gulf Coast with torrential rains and flooding. "Now we aren't too happy about that". So I think it's extremely important that we get home as quickly as we possibly can. "Now we just have to adjust". That's part of being in this business. "Why not? Let's shoot for $10 million and see what we can do".

The Texans and Cowboys won't play in Dallas tomorrow night after all.

The NFL has opted to cancel Thursday's preseason game between the Houston Texans and Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, because the Texans will be able to return home to their families in Houston sooner than anticipated.

Smith wasn't sure when the Texans would resume practice, but said that NRG Stadium wasn't damaged in the storm and that their opener there on September 10 against the Jacksonville Jaguars would go on as planned.

Now that they don't have to play the last preseason game, the Texans can spend a few days with their families and then begin preparation for the first regular-season game September 10 against Jacksonville at NRG Stadium. But it was a shout of joy when we announced we were going home. "We have people back home to worry about".

It seems like the National Football League is listening to J.J. Watt.

"But I think guys just want to see their wives, guys just want to see their kids, guys want to see their families".

"But that's our city. It's very tough to watch our city get hit by such a bad storm and not be there to help". Not be there to help with the recovery.

"We've been focused on everything going on back home", head coach Bill O'Brien said Monday. "We're going to help you out".

Watt personally gave $100,000 to the fundraiser, tweeting the message: "Your support is phenomenal!"
