On June 10, the Texans announced the offensive lineman was diagnosed with lymphoma. He'd started chemotherapy treatments through M.D. Anderson, and made time this morning to see practice. It meant a lot to players and coaches, alike.
Quessenberry wasn't able to meet with the media, but in speaking with his teammates, his presence was a welcome sight.
"It takes a man to do that," offensive lineman
O'Brien explained that Quessenberry was able to make it to the Houston Methodist Training Center because his "white blood cell count was down". Quessenberry missed his rookie season of 2013 with a leg injury. He wasn't around the current crop of rookies for more than a month or so, but his time around them and struggle he's enduring now, made an impression.
"It was a special moment," linebacker
Quessenberry is currently on the NFL's non-football illness list.
