HOUSTON: Houston Texans’ offensive lineman David Quessenberry has been diagnosed with lymphoma following which he has beenplaced on the non-football injury list.

The team said Quessenberry experienced “fatigue and a persistent cough” and almost immediately began chemotherapy treatments.

Meanwhile, the Denver Broncos signed rookie cornerback Bradley Roby, their first-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, to a contract yesterday.

The Broncos have now signed all six players that the team drafted last month. There are still 11 first-round picks around the NFL who have yet to sign contracts.

Where Johnny Manziel goes, the spotlight follows, but head coach Mike Pettine and the Cleveland Browns continue to pledge their support of the fun-loving rookie.

The confident quarterback from Texas A&M spent part of last weekend -- time off for the Browns -- sipping champagne while floating on an inflatable swan in a swimming pool at Club Rio in Austin, Texas, where the “X Games” were staged.

“I would become concerned if it was something criminal and I would be concerned if it affected his job,” Pettine said.

Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson said he will not skip minicamp or training camp in a contract holdout.
