Hurricane Irma May Impact Titans Game at Jacksonville

The Jacksonville Jaguars are spending another night in Houston because of Hurricane Irma.

Coach Doug Marrone says the team plans to take a flight home early Tuesday and resume normal game-week operations Wednesday.

The Jaguars stayed in Houston following a 29-7 victory against the Texans because of the impending hurricane and had to stay an extra night because the Jacksonville Airport was closed Monday after the storm passed. The St. Johns River endured historic surge levels and prompted evacuations for residents in and around the downtown area.

Jacksonville hosts the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. Marrone says officials are assessing damage to EverBank Field and will then determine whether the game will be played as scheduled. It also could get moved to Nashville, Tennessee or postponed to later in the season.
