AUSTIN (KXAN) — It seems like the NFL is listening to J.J. Watt. On Wednesday, a reporter for the NFL tweeted that Thursday’s preseason game between the Cowboys and the Texans is canceled.
The game, which was originally scheduled for Houston, was moved to Arlington. The proceeds from Thursday’s game were slated to go to Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts.
When Harvey struck, Watt said he didn’t believe the game should be played because of the catastrophic flooding. In response, Watt decided to help raise money for flooding victims. As of Wednesday morning, Watt and his fans have raised $5.1 million.
