HOUSTON (SPORTSRADIO 610) – Despite the floods brought on by the rain of Imelda, the Texans have been fortunate enough to keep plugging away in preparation for the Chargers.

“We checked on (the players) last night, had a normal day yesterday, moved practice up a little bit.  I know it’s a tough time, this rain has been unbelievable, but I think we made out okay,” Texans’ Head Coach Bill O’Brien said Friday, a day after Imelda saturated many parts of the city. 

With the Texans getting set to travel to California on Saturday, ahead of the meeting against the Chargers on Sunday, the Texans did their best to keep as normal a schedule as they could.  They also had some good fortune on their side. 

“I think we got kind of lucky there maybe, a little bit, with where these guys live,” O’Brien said.  “Not too many (of our guys) were affected by it, everybody has been on time and ready to go.”
