Over the past two days there have been reports that players on the Texans will protest McNair's "inmate" comment by taking a knee.
Protests during the National Anthem have been a topic of conversation all year, to the point that owners and players had meetings earlier in October to discuss how to raise awareness to the injustices the players are protesting.
The opening ceremonies of the Texans' late-afternoon game against the Seattle Seahawks were not broadcast live on CBS.
McNair did not meet with the players on Friday after the comment but instead waited until Saturday morning to apologize personally - which reportedly bothered some of the team's players.
He's also caught just 10 touchdown passes in 33 games with the Seahawks after catching 46 in 63 games with the Saints in the four seasons he spent as a starter prior to being traded.

Have owner Bob McNair and the Texans cleared the air?
The players were widely reported to have been planning an en masse demonstration against McNair over his choice of words. "We can't have the inmates running the prison", McNair said at a meeting regarding National Football League players' demonstrations against racial inequality and police brutality. Several players publicly came out against the owner's comments, including veteran Duane Brown.
But discussion of the matter at the Fall League Meeting yielded no change in the NFL policy that players "should" stand for the anthem. I think it angered a lot of players, including myself.
The national anthem protests began in 2016 when Colin Kaepernick, then a San Francisco 49ers quarterback, began sitting and later kneeling during the anthem to call attention to police shootings of unarmed black men in the United States.
