HOUSTON A fan was injured Sunday when a panel from an LED sign at Reliant Stadium fell on him, according to reports.
Two Houston news stations reported the fan was taken to the hospital during the Houston Texans' game against the Miami Dolphins with injuries not believed to be life-threatening.
The incident comes less than two weeks after a fan fell to his death while allegedly trying to slide down the handrailing of an escalator. That man, identified by authorities as 25-year-old Jonathan Kelly, fell three stories from escalator Aug. 30 during a preseason game at Reliant Stadium.
Reliant Stadium, which is owned by Harris County, opened in 2002.

The day was highlighted by the Texans hanging their first banner from the rafters of Reliant. That put a reminder of the magical 2011 season that fans will soon not forget.
It took some time for the Texans...
The Houston Texans opened up their regular season yesterday against the Miami Dolphins at Reliant Stadium. The Dolphins, with rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill, came into this game hoping to do to the Texans what Mark Sanchez did to them his rookie season and win his first career football game.

Arian Foster is expected to play in the season opener vs. Miami, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
While this is good news, Schefter also noted that the Texans want to test his ailing knee in pre-game warmups before officially clearing him for battle though.
HOUSTON (AP) -- Wide receiver DeVier Posey, cornerbacks Brandon Harris and Roc Carmichael and quarterback John Beck are among the inactive players for the Houston Texans in Sunday's opener against Miami.
Posey is the Texans' third-round draft pick out of Ohio State. Beck won the No. 3 spot on the depth chart in training camp, ahead of undrafted rookie Case Keenum.
For a while it seemed there would be no Hard Knocks in 2012. Plenty of teams either declined when offered or came out and said they weren’t interested, like the Seahawks, Falcons, Broncos, Texans, Niners, and Redskins. In the end it was the Miami Dolphins who accepted HBO’s opportunity. Looking back at the [...]
RELIANT STADIUM – The Texans, with high expectations, opened the 2012 season by routing the Miami Dolphins 30-10. Albeit the first quarter was comparable to a chess match, the Texans’ strengths far outweighed the Phins’, which is ultimately what led to the victory.
