Late last night, we received notice that a Texans player tested positive for COVID-19. In accordance with NFL protocols, the player immediately self-isolated and our Infection Control Officer and other members of the Infection Response Team began working with the NFL to perform contact tracing. Our facility will be closed today to players for deep cleaning.
The Houston Texans’ bye week couldn’t have come at a better time.

Days after buying Halloween costumes for students at a Houston charter school, Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson took four children to a Foot Locker for a shopping spree as part of his bye-week fundraising efforts. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said that Watson has raised $100,000 this week. In addition to his gift of Halloween costumes and shoes, the 25-year-old also organized a 150-mile exotic car ride to benefit his foundation, which this year is supporting Pro-Vision Academy.
