The Texans' Tyrann Mathieu on his teammate and fellow safety Andre Hal, who was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma, it was announced last week - "It's tough. Anytime you hear a teammate going through a struggle. We're here for him and praying for him. He's been around a lot, but I was looking forward to playing with him. I've heard a lot of great things about him about how smart he is and how much of a team player he is. Hopefully I'll be a shoulder for him to lean on this year."
