The Houston Texans made a bevy of roster moves Tuesday, but a promotion of a young offensive lineman from the practice squad to the active roster was perhaps the most meaningful.
The move to make him a part of the 53-man roster -- a transaction made possible by Houston placing center Nick Martin, tight end MyCole Pruitt and defensive lineman D.J. Reader on injured reserve -- means Quessenberry can now play in his first-ever regular-season game after being drafted nearly five years ago.
In 2015, the offensive lineman said of a possible return to the football field: "That will be a special day. I've been through a lot. That's something that's been a vision of mine throughout this whole process."
