Texans’ Andre Hal In Remission

Andre Hal‘s doctors have determined that his Hodgkin’s Lymphoma is now in remission, according to an announcement from the Texans. Hal was diagnosed with the disease over the summer but he has made “dramatic improvements” over the last few months. 

There’s even hope that the safety will be able to return to the field this season. On Wednesday, Texans head athletic trainer Geoff Kaplan was asked about the possibility and said, “I think everything’s on the table.”

Hal, 26, has been with the Texans since entering the league as a seventh-round pick in 2014. Eventually, he cracked the starting lineup and was rewarded with a three-year, $15MM extension prior to the 2017 season. Last year, Hal started in all 16 games for Houston and set a new career high in total tackles (71) while notching three interceptions.
