NFL.com’s Mike Garafolo reported the reason for the cancellation is so that players can get back to Houston, be with their families and help in relief efforts.
The decision comes two days after the NFL announced that the game, which was slated to be played in Houston, was moved to ATT Stadium in Arlington. The Texans had been practicing at a Cowboys facility in Frisco while flooding from Harvey pounded the Houston area. It would have been the final preseason tune-up before the regular season starts next week.
