David Quessenberry a surprise visitor on Thursday

Posted Jun 19, 2014

Offensive lineman David Quessenberry surprised his teammates Thursday by showing up at the Texans minicamp.

Thursday's minicamp was a short one, but it came with a special surprise: David Quessenberry visited his teammates.

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.

“That is a special thing," head coach Bill O'Brien said. "A 23-year-old guy who is going through that, a very special guy, impressive guy, how he’s dealing with it. It was great to see him out there."

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 Ben Jones said. "We know he's struggling. Know he's hurting. Know he's tired. His attitude toward everything is amazing."

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 Jadeveon Clowney said of seeing Quessenberry. "Just to know that he's fighting. The whole team is behind him. We're behind him 100 percent, and we're going to keep praying for him"

Quessenberry is currently on the NFL's non-football illness list.
