Jason Barfield, of the Huntsville Item, reports rookie free agent OL Chris Louvier (Sam Houston State) has been diagnosed as cancer free. In February, doctors found a germinoma tumor on Louvier's brain. In mid-April, he began radiation treatment which ran until the end of May. Now that the cancer is gone, Louvier he can start working toward his dream of playing pro football again, but it is still going to take a lot of work. He faces five months of rehabbing. Before news of his condition was wide-spread, the Houston Texans and Cleveland Browns expressed interest in the 6-5, 295-pound lineman. Even during his treatment process, both teams stayed in touch with him.
