On Monday’s Houston Matters: The Texans will wear the letters RCM on their helmets during their game tonight to honor late owner Bob McNair, who passed away Friday at the age of 81. While McNair was a successful businessman and prolific philanthropist, he might be best remembered as the man who brought the NFL back to Houston after the Oilers departed in the 90s. Jeff Balke reflects on McNair's legacy as the owner of the Texans and outlines what happens next regarding leadership of the franchise.

Also this hour: We remember local civil rights activist Ray Hill, who passed away Saturday. Hill was well known for his work in the LGBTQ community and fought for criminal justice reform.

Plus, we welcome your pet care questions for veterinarian Dr. Lori Teller of the Meyerland Animal Clinic.

And we learn about a book of photography called Lost, Texas, which highlights some of Greater Houston's most interesting abandoned buildings.
