After one year since he went into remission, the Texans have decided waived their offensive tackle.
Quessenberry was diagnosed with his cancer back in 2014 after he thought that he had a cold “that wouldn’t go away and he started coughing a lot and getting night sweats.”
And, one day on the field, he said that he got light headed and real tired and that’s when the trainer told him to go see a Dr. and once he said his Dr., the Dr. said that he needed to go to the emergency room after listening to his lungs.
That emergency room did a variety of test and that’s when his diagnose of non-Hodgkin T-lymphoblastic lymphoma came out.
Quessenberry was drafted out of San Jose State in 2013, the Texans took him in the sixth round, 176th overall.
After the draft, Quessenberry injured his foot and sat out his rookie year due to his injury.
His lymphoma diagnoses came when the offensive tackle was just getting back into playing
Last season everyone watched Coach O’Brien talking to Quessenberry during one of the Hard Knocks episodes what his 2015 position on the team.
O’Brien is telling Quessenberry that he’s expected back “next offseason”- that would be 2016. We hear O’Brien reassuring, smoothing him ver on him coming back to play again for the Texans too.
We also saw Quessenberry practicing during the 2015 Hard Knocks season too….
Right now, there is no real explanations behind their move, but there is a chance that the Texans are going to bring Quessenberry back and put him on Texans’ non-football injury/illness list and use Quessenberry in “some other capacity” too.
