    Hurricane Ike rips Texans' stadium

    HOUSTON (AP) - Damage caused by Hurricane Ike will likely lead to the postponement of Monday night's NFL game at Reliant Stadium between the visiting Baltimore Ravens and the Houston Texans.The storm tore chunks off the stadium's retractable roof and the damage can't be fixed in time to host the game, said Shea Guinn, the president and general manager of Reliant Park.

    "There is no way this stadium will host a game on Monday night," Guinn said Saturday. "There are parts of the roof that are completely gone."

    An official announcement was expected later Saturday, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said.

    "It certainly appears that the stadium is not going to be able to be used on Monday night," Aiello said.

    The game, originally scheduled for Sunday, was moved to Monday earlier in the week as Ike approached the area.

    The field is not scheduled to host another game until Oct. 5. If the game is postponed, it is unclear when it could be made up. The Texans' off week is Oct. 26, while Baltimore's is Nov. 6.

    Three years ago, when the New Orleans Saints were displaced because of Hurricane Katrina, they played four of their scheduled home games at LSU's Tiger Stadium, three in San Antonio and one in East Rutherford, N.J., against the New York Giants.

    If I remember correctly, Ike Taylor's formal name is Ivan. Hurricane Ivan was "retired" after the 2004 hurricane season, and it looks like Hurricane Ike could be retired too.

    Suzy Kolber: "So I'm a weather buff, and I need to ask: How does it feel having two catastrophic hurricanes named after you?"
