John Metchie Back on the Field After Leukemia Battle
Voluntary team workouts started for the NFL recently, and one of the multiple Alabama alumni to miss most or all of their rookie season last year has returned to the field.
John Metchie spent the entirety of his rookie season recovering from Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia (APL), which is the most treatable form of leukemia.
Now, Metchie is ready to rock and roll and show the NFL world what he's capable of.
Metchie's redshirt year was spent on a floundering Texans team, and there's a strong argument to made that his absence helped the team land the No. 2 overall pick. Couple that with Metchie's return, the Texans could be in for a huge resurgence this year.
