Clark Harris says he plans on tearing down his house in a couple years and rebuilding. It's a good thing, the Bengals long snapper says, because Hurricane Sandy might do it for him.
A native of New Jersey, Harris spent the Bengals bye weekend at his house on the coast. But, his flight back from Cincinnati canceled because of the storm, Harris drove twelve hours with his wife and infant baby to get back in time for practice.
"Nothing you can do about it," said Harris with a smile. "I can't stop a hurricane from coming. I've got flood insurance for a reason."
Harris said there was already standing water in his backyard when he left and said his parents will check on the house after the storm passes.
Two other Bengals, Brian Leonard and Mohamed Sanu, were able to get flights out of Newark before the cancellations.
Leonard says he doesn't own or rent in New Jersey, instead stays with an old friend when visiting home.
"I'm glad I didn't buy a place," Leonard said. "Because I would be panicking right now."
The Bengals play the Denver Broncos this Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium.
