It was another major emotional and physical milestone for Texans offensive lineman David Quessenberry on Tuesday.
Quessenberry is participating in his first practices since being diagnosed with non-Hodgkins T lymphoblastic lymphoma three years ago.
He celebrated the completion of his chemotherapy treatment at MD Anderson by ringing a bell earlier this spring off the wall.
“When I finished my intensive treatment I felt like the furthest thing from a football player – no hair, skinny – but your body is an amazing thing,” Quessenberry said. “We just took it slowly. We just did one workout at a time, one treatment at a time and eventually here we are.”
During the Texans’ first team meeting when workouts resumed in April, coach Bill O’Brien singled out Quessenberry for praise.
Quessenberry has worked diligently to regain his strength and weight to get back to the point where he could play again. We wish him well….
