HOUSTON (AP) -Houston Texans owner Bob McNair has discussed the possibility of his team playing at Rice Stadium if repairs to Reliant Stadium from Hurricane Ike can't be made in time for its first home game on Oct. 5.
The stadium's retractable roof lost five pieces in the storm and officials said large pieces of debris had fallen into the stadium.
Though he has discussed playing at Rice, which is four miles from Reliant, McNair is ``optimistic'' that repairs can be made in time for Houston to play at home against the Indianapolis Colts on Oct. 5.
