The Texans placed Quessenberry (knee) on injured reserve Friday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.
Quessenberry started 16-of-17 games at center for Houston last season and re-signed with the Texans on a one-year, $2.1 million deal. He was expected to compete with 2023 second-rounder Juice Scruggs for the starting job, but now Scruggs will likely open the season as the starter while Quessenberry will undergo surgery for the torn ACL and MCL and spend 2023 rehabbing.

Further testing determined Quessenberry's (knee) injury severity Thursday, Jonathan M. Alexander of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Houston's starting center was carted off during Wednesday's practice and unfortunately, the injury looks to be season ending. Quessenberry started 16 games for the Texans last season after four years with the Chargers. Expect the 2023 second-round pick, Juice Scruggs, to now start at center for Houston ahead of the coming season.
Quessenberry (undisclosed) needed to be carted off the field during training camp Thursday. Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Quessenberry's injury details are unclear, so it's hard to know the potential severity of it. The 28-year-old came into camp competing with rookie Juice Scruggs, for the starting-center job, but he'll now need to recover first before he can return to working to earn that role.
Quessenberry re-signed Wednesday with the Texans on a one-year contract, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.
Quessenberry was a 16-game starter along Houston's offensive line in 2022 and fared well enough during his time on the field for the Texans to bring him back for another year. The 27-year-old took over at center after Justin Britt left the team for personal reasons.
