The Houston Texans' rookie offensive lineman David Quessenberry broke his foot in practice this week and will miss the rest of the season, according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle. The sixth-round pick had surgery on the foot on Wednesday and will spend his entire rookie season on the injured reserve list.
Despite the devastating news, Quessenberry is keeping his spirits up.
Sometimes these unfortunate things happen. I love this game and this team. I will be back in no time and be strong as ever.

Quessenberry is a versatile 6-5, 305 pound lineman drafted out of San Jose State. His best asset is his ability to play multiple positions on the line. He is listed as an offensive tackle, but he can also move to the inside and play guard and has some experience at center.
Quessenberry's role on the team this year was most likely as a reserve lineman on the left side of the line behind starters Wade Smith and Duane Brown, but now with the injury, the team will shelf him on IR for the season and hope he can return next year and contribute.
The good news for the Texans is that they will get back starting left guard Wade Smith for the season opener against the San Diego Chargers. Smith suffered a knee injury during the preseason but has made a quick recovery to return to the lineup.
