Houston Texans rookie receiver John Metchie announced Sunday he has a rare form of leukemia.

“Recently I was diagnosed with APL (Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia), the most curable of Leukemia,” Metchie said via a statement from the Texans. “I am currently receiving great medical care, am in good spirts and I expect to make a recovery at a later point in time.”

The diagnosis is a significant blow to his chances to play in 2022. Metchie was already working back from a torn ACL sustained in December in the SEC Championship Game.

As Metchie concluded his statement that he couldn’t wait, “to come back stronger than ever,” an army of well-wishers took to Twitter to show their support for the Texans’ second-round pick.
