Houston Texans line dedicates season to David Quessenberry

Houston Texans offensive lineman David Quessenberry is dealing with a “life-threatening form” of high-grade lymphoma and his treatment is expected to last four to six months.

As Quessenberry begins his third round of chemotherapy, his teammates back in Houston have decided to honor the offensive lineman by dedicating the entire to 2014-15 NFL season to him.

“Absolutely, we have dedicated this season to him as a line,” Texans left tackle Duane Brown told the Houston Chronicle. “He’s in the ultimate battle right now.”

A couple of more Texans offensive linemen spoke about Quessenberry, who is constantly in their thoughts.

“With everything going on with David right now this season is obviously going to be dedicated to him,” Myers said. “He’s on our minds 24-7, and that’s not going to stop. . . . It’s going to go throughout the whole season and for us to be able to do something special this season would be huge for him.”

“Hey, every night we go to bed, we say a prayer for the man,” guard Ben Jones said. “Every day we try to reach out to him because he means a lot to us. We want him to know we’re behind him.”

The Texans offensive line is also honoring Quessenberry with bracelets and t-shirts, as they raise awareness about lymphoma.

Houston’s locker room was rocked by the news that Quessenberry was dealing with the form of cancer, but they have rallied together and provided a great support group for Quessenberry as he fights through this difficult time.

We would like to wish Quessenberry the best as he continues to stay strong and fight through his battle.
