Texans OT David Quessenberry (cancer) returned to practice at OTAs last week.

Quessenberry is back after a three-year battle with lymphoma. "It was a long fight," said Quessenberry, who underwent his final chemotherapy treatment a few months ago. "Now that we're not talking about the next treatment, we're just talking about the next phase of the spring. It's exciting." The 26-year-old is probably a long shot for the 53-man roster, but it's a great story.

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.

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'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.

He's undergoing surgery. The No. 176 overall pick in April's draft spent most of his time at left guard in the preseason.

Quessenberry will be back to compete next year.
