Houston Texans defensive end Dylan Horton announced Monday that his Hodgkin's lymphoma is in remission.

Horton was diagnosed on Dec. 1 of last year, three months into his rookie season in the NFL. He was moved onto the reserve/non-football illness list.

"Through God's grace, I'm blessed to say that I'm currently in remission," Horton said in a statement. "I am grateful for the love from my family and friends, and support from the Texans organization and my doctors. My next objective is to complete my treatments, then get back to playing the game that I love. Thank you for your prayers and support as I continue this journey."

Born in Houston and raised in Frisco, Texas, Horton got into 10 games for the Texans in 2023 after they drafted him out of TCU in the fourth round of last April's draft. He made 13 tackles and recovered a fumble.
