Houston Texans offensive tackle David Quessenberry has been diagnosed with lymphoma and is undergoing cancer treatments, the team announced earlier today.

The 23-year old "experienced fatigue and a persistent cough over the past week and sought a medical evaluation to find the cause," the Texans said in a statement. "David was diagnosed and is presently being treated through M.D. Anderson Hospital."

Quessenberry originally thought all he had was a chest cold but was diagnosed last Tuesday with Non-Hodgkin T Lymphoblastic Lymphoma, one of a large group of cancers impacting white blood cells that defend the body against infection.

The O-Lineman was drafted in the 6th round of the 2013 NFL draft out of San Jose State and spent much of his rookie season on the injured reserve list after a foot injury.

The team confirmed they will place Quessenberry on the non-football injury list and can't wait for him to have fought off the illness and eventually return to the team.

Best of luck to David from everyone at GMS.
