Players and staff from the Houston Texans paid a visit to their hometown fans affected by Hurricane Harvey in a shelter at NRG Center on Thursday.


Over 50 members of the organization spent more than an hour at the shelter, signing autographs and taking pictures.



Antonia, who requested her last name not be used, watched her son, Chris, play catch with quarterback Tom Savage.

"I was sitting down on the cots trying to figure out which bills I could pay," she told ESPN. "I didn't know what we were going to do. And then they walked in, and everything felt OK."


Texans head coach Bill O'Brien spent his time at the shelter talking to kids.

"It's going to take a while to get back, but this city is tough," O'Brien said. "These people here are great. We've got great fans here. And they're going to get back on their feet quickly."
