HOUSTON (AP) -Houston Texans owner Bob McNair says he would be ``shocked'' if his team doesn't play its home opener at hurricane damaged Reliant Stadium 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 during Hurricane Ike. The roof probably won't be fixed in time for the game against Indianapolis, but McNair said that game and the remaining home games could be played with the roof open.
If he had to put a percentage on the chance the Texans will play the Ravens at home, he said it would be in the high 90s.
``I can't say with absolute certainty,'' he said. ``But let's put it this way, I'd be shocked if we did not play there.''
