Texans GM Rick Smith Taking a Leave of Absence from the Franchise

Texans GM Rick Smith is taking a leave of absence to help take care of his wife, Tiffany, who’s been undergoing treatment for breast cancer in Arizona for the last few weeks, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.

“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,” Smith said in a statement. “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.”
