It was pretty cool to watch Quessenberry walk on the field and see the rest of his teammates notice one-by-one. #Texans

Best moment of #Texans offseason? Easy! David Quessenberry handed his #77 jersey by his O-line & able to take positional picture!!

Ben Jones fields wobbling punt by diving and rolling over and jumps up & celebrates as only Ben can. Teammates rush over as vacation begins.

Good sight seeing David Quessenberry come out to the field. Plenty of hugs from his teammates and staff after seeing him arrive. #Texans

O'Brien knew Quessenberry would be able to come if his white blood cell count was at the right level and the doctors allowed him. #Texans

Definite last day of school vibe today for the final day of minicamp. JJ Watt walked by with a "have a great summer guys!" #Texans

"That's a special thing" O'Brien on having Quessenberry here today.

Powe was up next if Ben Jones couldn't catch the punt. Said he was confident he would catch it. #Texans

Jerrell Powe said Quessenberry's main message to the team was to thank his teammates for support and that he was gonna kick cancer's butt.

"You try to pick an offensive lineman that’s a fun guy, a good guy, a hard-working guy." OB on why he picked Ben Jones to catch the punt

"It's not really a vacation time." O'Brien on the next month for his team #Texans

"I know it meant a lot to the team and I know it meant a lot to him." -- O'Brien on Quessenberry #Texans

"I advised all the rookies to be around quite a bit during this break."- O'Brien on #Texans in between now and training camp.

O'Brien: Full contact practices will start 3 days into #Texans training camp.

O'Brien on new #Texans ILB Akeem Dent: "He'll battle for ILB spot and special teams."

Rookie K David Boswell pooch punted OL Ben Jones and he caught it. Because of that, #Texans practice was over.

"I know it meant a lot to the team." O'Brien on Quessenberry's attendance at #Texans practice.

OL David Quessenberry watched #Texans practice today. "It was great to see him out there,"-Bill O'Brien.

O'Brien talking w/media now. Cut practice short today. "Good meeting, good walkthrough. Time to take a break."

Bill O’Brien said he’s advised all the rookies to stick around Houston during the break. #Texans

I’m not sure if a Havard guy has ever been described with a Cowboy Mentality. - O’Brien on Posey saying Fitzpatrick has a CM as in tough.

Akeem Dent is a guy that’s going to battle for the inside linebacker spot and special teams. #Texans

O’Brien talked about how great of a family David Quessenberry comes from. Great moment for the team. #Texans

O’Brien said this team has put in a lot of time because they started early bc of a new staff. Reason they ended early. #Texans

David Quessenberry won't be available to the media. He already had to leave the facility. Great to see him at practice though. #justawesome

Jadeveon Clowney remains on track, #Texans' O'Brien said. #NFL

Bill O'Brien designated Ben Jones, who's obviously very special, to catch practice-ending punt. #NFL #Texans

Boswell made final wobbly, punt to Ben Jones.

Being physically and mentally tough is important to O'Brien. That's why they'll have some full-contact practices.

O'Brien plans to have a lot of full-contact practices in training camp. Texans also practice against Falcons and Broncos.

Bill O'Brien said he's pleased with his draft choices but "the real test comes in camp when we put the pads on."
