Houston Texans rookie wide receiver John Metchie III announced Sunday that he has been diagnosed with acute promyelocytic leukemia.

Metchie, a second-round pick in the 2022 NFL draft out of Alabama, said in a statement that APL is “the most curable form of leukemia,” though he admits that he likely will not play football this season.

A talented pass-catcher for the Crimson Tide, Metchie was already trying to work his way back from a torn ACL suffered in last year’s SEC title game victory over Georgia.
