    My Dad just recently blew out his knee in a softball game. Given his height and the fact that he can't bend his knee and needs to be keep his leg straightened out he won't be able to sit in the seats we have tickets for. Is there any kind of like handicap seating wheres theres more space that we can use (it's just me and him)? Or is he just out of luck and not going to be able to make it? I know Minute Maid Park has those seats at the beginning of each aisle that look like they are for handicap folks, and it looks like there's plenty of seating for it. Wondering basically if the Texans have something like and how it works. Thanks in advance.

    They have handicapped seating, but not sure how the seats are sold. Your best bet is to contact the Texans ASAP and see if they can help you. Good luck.

    This happened to me not to long ago. All I did was ask the "yellow" shirt at my section where I could go. She contacted someone who said I could trade my tickets for a seat in the handicap section, and they were more than helpful in trying to accommodate me. I was wheelchair bound though, not on crutches. BUT, I don't think it would make any difference. They will do whatever it takes to help you, including sending a golf cart to the parking lot. Just notify the # posted above.

    ^ Awesome, did it look like there was plenty of handicap seating to spare?

    CALL THE TEXANS ASAP! THIS GAME IS A SELL OUT.

    The Texans cannot accommodate you if there are no open handicapped seats.

    I'm in Sect. 322 Row F Seats 15 and 16. Does anyone know if one of those seats happens to be on the aisle? Would give my Dad some more leg room to stretch out his leg a bit.
