Texas Move On With Practice While Repairs Go On At Reliant Stadium

By  | 

HOUSTON -- The Houston Texans will resume practice tomorrow
with uncertainty after Hurricane Ike seriously damaged Reliant
Stadium.
Aerial photos of the retractable roof showed five pieces
missing, with four of them concentrated on one end of the stadium.
The team's indoor practice facility, or "bubble," located
across the street from the stadium, was deflated during the storm
and wasn't damaged.
Houston also has two outdoor practice fields next to the bubble
that are operational.
SMG-Reliant Park, which manages the facilities, said in a
statement that representatives from the engineering firm which
designed the building's structural systems found no damage to the
primary roof structure, only to large pieces on the top.
The firm -- Walter P. Moore -- conducted a "preliminary
structural inspection."
The statement says more detailed inspections will be done over
the next few days.
