Houston Texans WRs to wear cleats to honor John Metchie III

In what has been one of the saddest storylines in the NFL this season, Houston Texans wide receiver, John Metchie III, has missed his rookie season due to a battle with leukemia. Metchie was diagnosed on July 24, just a few months after the Texans spent their second-round pick, No. 44 overall, on him.

The former Crimson Tide star took it in stride and is eagerly anticipating a return to the field, whenever that may be. In the meantime, the Texans organization has been incredibly classy in how they have treated Metchie throughout the entire process.

To celebrate Metchie, the Texans receiving core will be wearing cleats honoring him as part of the NFL’s MyCauseMyCleats movement. It is clear the impact that he has had on the entire organization in less than a year.

I speak for everyone when I say I hope he can return to the field as soon as possible.
