In some awesome NFL news this Thursday, offensive lineman David Quessenberry has completed his chemotherapy treatments. On top of that, he’s ready to compete for a roster spot this summer.
Quessenberry was being treated for Hodkins lymphoblastic lymphoma, which he was diagnosed with in 2014, per TMZ Sports.
To celebrate his recovery, he rang and actually broke the victory bell upon completing his final treatment.

This is a great sign that he is well on his way to getting back to full strength. Quessenberry was selected in the sixth round by the Houston Texans in the 2013 NFL Draft.
After being diagnosed, the Texans waived him. He cleared waivers and was placed on the team’s non-football injury list.
We wish him well as he pursues his dream of playing in the NFL.
