Cancer Survivor OL David Quessenberry Promoted to Active Roster from Practice Squad

In an emotional roster move years in the making, the Texans promoted veteran offensive lineman David Quessenberry to the active roster from the practice squad, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Quessenberry is a cancer survivor who hasn’t played in an NFL regular season game while courageously battling non-Hodgkin T-lymphoblastic lymphoma.

Quesseberry was declared free of cancer earlier this year after undergoing years of treatment at MD Anderson in Houston.

Meanwhile, the Texans placed starting center Nick Martin on injured reserve due to an ankle injury suffered Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Texans also placed starting nose tackle D.J. Reader on injured reserve along with backup tight end MyCole Pruitt.

In addition to promoting Quessenberry, the Texans promoted safety Ibraheim Campbell and defensive tackle Chunky Clements from the practice squad to the active roster.

They signed former Stephen F. Austin quarterback Zach Conque, a converted tight end who originally signed by the Texas as an undrafted free agent, to the practice squad.
