Texans offensive lineman David Quessenberry, diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma one year ago Wednesday, predicted he will make a return to football.
“I will be back out there,” Quessenberry told the Texans' team site. “That will be a special day. I’ve been through a lot. That’s something that’s been a vision of mine throughout this whole process.”
Selected in the sixth round of the 2013 draft, Quessenberry has yet to log an NFL snap. He was placed on IR with a foot injury his rookie season and then received the cancer diagnosis last summer.
Quessenberry isn't cleared to resume football activities but he has been working out and lifting weights with his teammates. Texans coach Bill O'Brien said it's not out of the question that Quessenberry plays this season.
“I would say that this season is a possibility,” O’Brien said. “I would not rule it out. I would not rule it out, but we haven’t come to that determination yet.
