HOUSTON (AP) -The Houston Texans will play their home opener against Indianapolis Oct. 5 in hurricane- damaged Reliant Stadium with the roof open.
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 won't be fixed in time for the game against Indianapolis, but insurance adjusters and architects said it is structurally sound to host the game with the roof open.
Officials expect that all eight of Houston's home games this season will be played with the roof open.
