Texans G/T David Quessenberry hopes to resume his career in 2016 after missing the past two seasons as he underwent cancer treatments.

"I'm very happy about how everything is going," Quessenberry said. "I feel great." Quessenberry did add he still might need to add some weight. The No. 176 overall pick of the 2013 draft, Quessenberry missed his entire rookie year with a foot injury, and has never played an NFL down. He turns 26 in August.

Texans placed G/T David Quessenberry (lymphoma) on the reserve/NFI list.

Quessenberry was sidelined all of 2014 while undergoing chemotherapy and radiation. He will miss at least the first six games of the season, but the fact that he has a shot of playing this season is a great story. Houston also waived/injured S Terrence Parks and TE Anthony Denham and waived LB Jeff Tarpinian and P Will Johnson.

The Texans believe G/T David Quessenberry (lymphoma) could play in 2015.

Diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma one year ago, Quessenberry missed the entire 2014 season undergoing chemotherapy and radiation. He's now working out and attending team meetings at the Texans' facility before pushing sleds and doing individual drills on side fields at practices. Doctors have yet to clear him to play football, but coach Bill O'Brien thinks it could happen this year.

Texans G/T David Quessenberry (lymphoma) revealed on Wednesday that he finished radiation two weeks ago and is now in remission.

"I love saying that," Quessenberry continued. "I'm starting into my maintenance phase." Excellent news. Quessenberry was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma last June and missed the entire 2014 season. It's still unclear what this means for his football future, but we're glad to hear Quessenberry is doing well.

Texans placed G/T David Quessenberry on reserve/non-football illness list, ending his season.

The Texans announced Quessenberry was diagnosed with a life-threatening form of non-Hodgkins lymphoma earlier this year. We wish the 24-year-old a full and speedy recovery. If Quessenberry does recover and wants to try playing football again, the Texans will maintain his rights.

Texans G/T David Quessenberry's cancer is expected to require 4-6 months of treatment, and he will miss the entire season.

According to cancer specialist Dr. Jack Jacoub, Quessenberry is dealing with a "life-threatening form" of high-grade lymphoma. It's shattering news for a 2013 sixth-rounder who missed his entire rookie season with a broken foot. This fight will be much tougher, but Quessenberry has youth (24 in August) and being a world-class athlete on his side. Here's to a complete recovery.

Texans placed G/T David Quessenberry on the reserve/non-football illness list.

The team announced the second-year lineman has been diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma. Lymphoma is a type of blood cancer where the white blood cells divide faster than normal cells, or live longer than they are supposed to. Quessenberry had been battling fatigue and a cough for the past week. He thought he merely had a chest cold, but underwent tests before the jarring news was revealed. Quessenberry is being treated at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. We wish the 23-year-old a full and speedy recovery.

ESPN Texans reporter Tania Ganguli reports the previous coaching staff was "excited" about second-year G/T David Quessenberry last summer.

Quessenberry, the 176th overall pick in last year's draft, landed on injured reserve with a broken foot in Week 2. The Texans have holes at both left guard and right tackle, though Quessenberry profiles more as a guard in the pros. He's an ideal fit for zone-blocking teams as a finesse blocker at 6-foot-5, 306. The Texans are likely to use less zone blocking under new coach Bill O'Brien.

Texans placed G/T David Quessenberry on injured reserve with a broken foot, ending his season.

The No. 176 pick of April's draft underwent surgery last week. He'll compete for a starting guard job next summer.
Tue, Sep 10, 2013 04:48:00 PM

Texans G/T David Quessenberry broke his foot in Wednesday's practice and is expected to miss the entire season.

He's undergoing surgery. The No. 176 overall pick in April's draft spent most of his time at left guard in the preseason. Pro Football Focus gave him a positive grade as a run blocker on 189 offensive snaps. He's a good fit for Houston's zone-blocking scheme as an athletic lineman. Quessenberry will be back to compete next year.
Wed, Sep 4, 2013 01:42:00 PM

Texans agreed to terms with No. 176 overall pick OT David Quessenberry on a four-year contract.

Quessenberry has left-tackle size at 6-foot-5, 302 pounds with 34 3/8-inch arms, but doesn't play with an abundance of power. That's not a deal-breaker in the Texans' zone-blocking scheme, but means he'll need time to refine his technique. Quessenberry could also see time at guard.

Texans traded up to select San Jose State OT David Quessenberry with the No. 176 overall pick, sending the Nos. 184 and 233 overall picks to the Raiders.

Quessenberry (6-foot-4 7/8, 302) made 37 starts for the Spartans, primarily at left tackle. A former walk-on at tight end, he demonstrates enough athleticism and length (34 3/8") to potentially start at left guard or protect the blindside in a pinch, although Quessenberry must fill out his frame. He ran 5.08 with a 29.5-inch vertical at the Combine and performed 25 reps on the bench. Confirming his impressive short-area movement skills, Quessenberry's 4.45 20-yard shuttle was third fastest among offensive linemen. He's a quintessential zone blocker who will never play with power. Quessenberry could sneak into the starting lineup at right guard or right tackle for the Texans.

The Green Bay Press-Gazette believes San Jose State OT David Quessenberry "fits the profile" of a Packers draft pick.

Quessenberry played primarily left tackle for the Spartans, but the Packers believe the 6-foot-5, 302-pound prospect is capable of playing all three line positions. Quessenberry is long-armed and light on his feet, traits valued in Green Bay's zone-blocking scheme. Quessenberry projects as a third- or fourth-rounder.
