HOUSTON (AP) Safety Andre Hal, who is in remission after being diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma, resumed practicing with the Houston Texans on Wednesday, giving the team 21 days to take him off the non-football illness list and add him to the active roster.
Hal was diagnosed with the disease in May and immediately began treatment. He received the news of his remission on Sept. 18.
Coach Bill O'Brien says the players were thrilled with the news when he told them on Wednesday morning. He discussed the work Hal did to stay in shape while he was fighting the disease.
