David Quessenberry was a sixth-round pick out of San Jose State in the 2013 NFL Draft. After missing his rookie season with a foot injury, he was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. For the next two years, he dealt with radiation therapy and treatment to combat the disease. Last year, he completed his treatment and found his way back to a NFL field. He played as a sixth offensive lineman for the Texans on Christmas Day against Pittsburgh, and he was pretty good!
All of this is just words summarizing a difficult experience I couldn’t imagine. Below is a video the Houston Texans created showing Quessenberry’s journey from the hospital back to the football field. Watch it. It’s worth your time.
