Houston Texans offensive lineman David Quessenberry, diagnosed with lymphoma, was placed on the non-football injury list.

The team said Quessenberry experienced "fatigue and a persistent cough" and almost immediately began chemotherapy treatments.

Players on the NFI list are paid at the team's discretion, but Quessenberry is expected to receive his full salary.

The 2013 sixth-round pick landed on injured reserve before Week 2 last season with a foot injury. He was hurt in practice.

A walk-on at San Jose State, Quessenberry will be treated at world-renowned MD Anderson Cancer Center.

"We are extremely confident in the care and treatment David will receive," Texans GM Rick Smith said. "He 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."
