Texans dedicate their season to city of Houston

Thursday's preseason game between the Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, has been canceled, both teams announced.

The Texans might have Thursday night's preseason game moved from NRG, but they expect to host Jacksonville on September 10 as scheduled.

In the time since, the Texans have opted for an opportunity to return home to their families and community.

All proceeds were going to the Hurricane Harvey relief effort.

At this time it is not clear what would happen to those who had already purchased the tickets prior to the cancellation. But the 10 injured players who didn't accompany the team to New Orleans last Wednesday - wide receivers DeAndre Hopkins, Will Fuller and Braxton Miller and running backs D'Onta Foreman and Akeem Hunt among them - waited out the storm in Houston.

There's "animosity" between Republican leaders and their members, and between House and Senate Republicans, she said. "I hope so. Wednesday's speech is to focus on tax reform, according to the White House, and will viewed primarily by credentialed media.

"Football is obviously important, but I think the most important thing is doing everything we can for our city, I can tell you right now, we're going to dedicate this season to the city of Houston, the people of Houston", O'Brien said.

Thursday's relocated preseason game between the Cowboys and Texans has been canceled. "I said it a couple days ago, but this is bigger than football".

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.

The Houston Texans are in a bit of a pickle.

"It's very hard", Texans star defensive end JJ Watt said in an emotional video on Sunday, "not only because we have family and friends back there - some guys have young kids, some guys have wives and families - but that's our city". I've seen numerous heroic acts, everything we've seen on the TV from the first responders to just neighbors helping neighbors. That's about the best-case scenario that could some from a game on Thursday is if it raised multi-millions of dollars. The NFL will also donate $1 million. It's bigger than a game. "Houston's a great city". Watt started a fundraiser at YouCaring.com/JJWatt on Sunday.
