The Houston Texans had a surprise visitor on the final day of their mandatory minicamp practices in offensive tackle David Quessenberry.
ESPN.com reported about the visit, as it was the first visit for Quessenberry since being diagnosed with non-Hodgkins T Lymphoblastic Lymphoma.
Head coach Bill O’Brien was quoted by the ESPN.com article by Tania Ganguli:
“That’s a special thing. Twenty-three-year-old guy who’s going through that. Very special guy. Impressive guy, how he’s dealing with it. … It was great to see him out there.”
The most important thing for Quessenberry is his health and we wish him nothing but the best in his battle with non-Hodgkins T Lymphoblastic Lymphoma.
Quessenberry was drafted last season by the Texans in the sixth round (the 176th overall selection) from San Jose State. He didn’t play in a game last season after suffering a season ending leg injury in training camp. He was to challenge current Texans right tackle Derek Newton for the starting RT job.
Newton has since been named the starting right tackle for the upcoming season by O’Brien.
