Hurricane Harvey has exiled the Houston Texans to Dallas, and while the NFL team prepares for its final preseason game on Thursday night, the players are keeping up as best they can with what's going on amid the catastrophic flooding back home.
Proceeds from Thursday's game will be donated to the United Way of Greater Houston Relief Fund, which supports the work of the Red Cross and Salvation Army in the wake of the hurricane.
Jackson asked fans to donate to the fundraiser started by Houston defensive end JJ Watt, which already has collected more than $5 million.
The NFL has eliminated the mandatory roster reduction from 90 players to 75 that traditionally took place on the Tuesday before the final preseason games.
