The Texans have known for some time that they wouldn’t have offensive lineman David Quessenberry on their roster this season, but he didn’t officially make his way to injured reserve until Monday.

Quessenberry was diagnosed with lymphoma during the offseason vowed to “kick cancer’s butt” during a visit with his teammates after learning about the disease. We hope he does just that and then returns to the Texans in great shape in time for next season.

The procedural move with Quessenberry was one of 10 moves the Texans made on Monday to start whittling the roster down to 75 players. John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports that the team also waived guard Sam Longo, wide receiver Joe Adams, wide receiver Alec Lemon, running back William Powell, defensive tackle David Hunter, defensive tackle Austin Brown, linebacker Terrance Lloyd, linebacker Lawrence Sidbury and cornerback Junior Mertile.

Houston has four more moves to make before Tuesday’s deadline to make their first round of cuts.

    Unfortunately that was misreported. The Texans put him on Non Football Injury Reserve. Time spent on IR would have counted towards free agency and retirement benefits.

    Non Football Injury Reserve does not.

    You go, David! I think a linebacker for the Giants, Mark Herzlich also beat cancer. Perhaps you should give him a call.

    I bought my t-shirt supporting you.
