HOUSTON (FOX 26) -  Houston Texans second-year offensive tackle David Quessenberry said his visit on Thursday to the team's workout just "felt right."

Quessenberry was at Texans practice at the Methodist training center at NRG Park for the first time since being diagnosed with lymphoma.

His teammates were very happy to see him and the visit gave Quessenberry a break from his treatments at M.D. Anderson Hospital.

"I would say being around the team felt right today," Quessenberry said in a text message to FOX 26 Sports. "I could feel everyone's support and love. I really enjoyed being out there today with the fellas and it was a great day to be out there.

"Ben Jones made a heck of a grab which made the day even better!"

When guard Ben Jones caught a punt from kicker Chris Boswell coach Bill O'Brien ended practice shortly after it began which meant the Texans mandatory minicamp was over and the players celebrated.

Quessenberry spoke briefly to the team telling his teammates he is going to win his battle with cancer.

"All in all being back on the field got me back to a sense of normalcy that I had been accustomed to," Quessenberry said. "I was thrown for a loop when I got diagnosed with cancer, but days like today make me feel better bout my fight and allow me to still count my many blessings."
