Houston Texans offensive tackle David Quessenberry is undergoing treatment after being diagnosed last Tuesday with lymphoma, according to a statement from the team on Tuesday.

Quessenberry, 23, had been experiencing "fatigue and a persistent cough over the past week" and believed he had a chest cold but a subsequent medical exam diagnosed him with Non-Hodgkin T Lymphoblastic Lymphoma. He is currently being treated at M.D. Anderson Hospital at the University of Texas, according to Tom Pelissero of USA Today Sports. 

Texans General Manager Rick Smith, according to the team's statement:

"[David] is a fighter and a courageous young man and we look forward to his full and complete recovery. We will continue to support him and his family and look forward to his return to the team."

Quessenberry, a sixth-round draft pick out of San Jose State in 2013, will be placed on the non-football injury list. He spent his rookie season on the injured reserve because of a broken foot suffered in practice. He was First-team All-WAC in 2012 at San Jose State.
