“I will be back out there,” Quessenberry told the Texans' team site. “That will be a special day. I’ve been through a lot. That’s something that’s been a vision of mine throughout this whole process.”
Selected in the sixth round of the 2013 draft, Quessenberry has yet to log an NFL snap. He was placed on IR with a foot injury his rookie season and then received the cancer diagnosis last summer.
Quessenberry isn't cleared to resume football activities but he has been working out and lifting weights with his teammates. Texans coach Bill O'Brien said it's not out of the question that Quessenberry plays this season.
“I would say that this season is a possibility,” O’Brien said. “I would not rule it out. I would not rule it out, but we haven’t come to that determination yet.
Quessenberry battled lymphoma last season, and doctors said that the cancer was in remission in February.
"I finished radiation two weeks ago," Quessenberry said, via Houston's ABC 13. "I'm officially in remission. I love saying that. I'm in remission and I'm starting into my maintenance phase."
Quessenberry missed the entire 2014 season as he underwent cancer treatment. It's unclear if Quessenberry will be able to participate in any offseason activities with the Texans. He's under contract through the 2016 season.
Quessenberry was taken in the sixth round of the 2013 draft by the Texans.
