OFFICIAL: Rick Smith to take leave of absence

Posted Dec 31, 2017

Texans Vice President of Football Operations and General Manager Rick Smith released a statement following Sunday's game.

The following is a statement from Houston Texans Executive Vice President of Football Operations and General Manager Rick Smith:

“Effective immediately, I have chosen to take an extended leave of absence to focus my attention and intention on my wife's complete recovery from her recent diagnosis of breast cancer. We are faithful and trust in God's promise of healing and Wholeness. I am eternally grateful to the McNair family for their unwavering support during this trying time. This was an extremely difficult decision for me to make as I love this organization and every member of this team both on and off the field. I remain committed to our quest to bring a championship to the city of Houston, yet my family needs me now and they are my priority.”
