David Quessenberry focused on football

Posted Apr 18, 2017

With chemotherapy behind him, David Quessenberry is focused on football.

It's been a long time since David Quessenberry's played football. He hasn't practiced with his teammates since the spring of 2014. 
 

But with his cancer treatment in the rearview mirror, now he's focused on a return to the gridiron.
 

“I don’t know what it’s going to feel like," Quessenberry said on Monday. "It’s something I’ve thought about for however many days – 1,050 days – since I got diagnosed. I can’t wait. It’s going to feel beautiful.”
 

The offensive lineman said he's not at the weight he was in 2013, but that he isn't far from it either.
 

“I’m a little lighter but I feel good at this weight," Quessenberry said. "We’ll continue to crush these workouts and see what happens.”
 

As far as where he'll play on the line, Quessenberry stressed that he's flexible. He was projected to compete for a right tackle spot before the lymphoma diagnosis in 2014.
 

“I really like the offensive line position in general – tackle, guard, center," Quessenberry said. "I think I take pride in being able to play them all. Wherever I can help the team.”
 

He also said the 'nasty streak' he played with wasn't affected by the chemotherapy.
 

“Yeah, it’s still there,” Quessenberry said with grin.
 

He and the Texans continue with offseason conditioning work at NRG Stadium and the Houston Methodist Training Center.
