Dell posted May 3 on Instagram Stories a photo of him in the Texans’ new red uniforms, captioning the image “God I thank you” along with a praying hands emoji.

According to KPRC in Houston, sources said Dell was “very lucky” to both be alive and to have avoided any structural damage to his leg.

An innocent bystander, Dell got caught up in the middle of a crossfire between two shooters during a private event at a Sanford, Florida, bar. Ten people, including Dell, suffered non-life-threatening injuries. Dell sustained a gunshot flesh wound that “went through one side of his leg and exited the other side,” according to KPRC. One 16-year-old suspect was arrested and is in custody.

A video provided by the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office shows the shootout in a crowd of people running for their lives.
