Texans Tackle David Quessenberry's Pickup Truck Recovered From Evil Smugglers
For Texans rookie offensive tackle David Quessenberry, OTA's and mini camp have been the best of times and the worst of times.

On the one hand, with injuries to incumbent starter Derek Newton and fellow rookie Brennan Williams, the sixth-round draft choice out of San Jose State has been given an inordinate amount of reps at the right tackle position, a position that is very much up for grabs as the Texans head to training camp next month.
It would seem Quessenberry's chances of making the team have at the very least been enhanced, perhaps even solidified.
Now for the bad news...
While his on-the-field career is blossoming nicely, Quessenberry's luck off of the field has been a bit spotty, at least as pertains to his vehicle.
As tweeted by Quessenberry on Saturday morning, on Friday night his white Ford F350 pickup truck was stolen by bad people from right out in front of the Texans' rookie hotel:
My truck was stolen last night. Please keep an eye out Houston. It's an 06' White F350 king ranch edition. license plate BA5 3454. Thank you— David Quessenberry (@DavidQberry) June 8, 2013
(Sidebar: If you steal someone's ride, you are inherently a bad person. As Vincent Vega said in Pulp Fiction, you don't fuck with another man's vehicle.)
In her article on this caper yesterday, Tania Ganguli of the Houston Chronicle noted that it was actually fellow sixth-round draft choice and defensive tackle Chris Jones who was borrowing Quessenberry's truck at the time that it was stolen, which may or may not have earned Jones a stray cut block or two from Quessenberry once the Texans put pads on next month.
Shortly after discovering his wheels were stolen, a presumably despondent Quessenberry tweeted out a picture of the poor ol' girl, his missing F350, and asked Houston to pour out a 40 and keep an eye out for her (as the truck no doubt was cruising at breakneck speed to the border)...
Keep an eye out for my truck Houston. Last seen at spring hill suites by Reliant Stadium. Plate # BA5 3454 twitter.com/DavidQberry/st...— David Quessenberry (@DavidQberry) June 8, 2013
