Buffalo Bills Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly revealed on Monday at his annual football camp that he is currently cancer free. Kelly addressed the media assembled at the camp held at Ralph Wilson Stadium and said that scans done last Wednesday show no signs of cancer. Kelly will have to return every two months for bone scans to see if the cancer has returned in his jaw.

“I found out great news on Wednesday,” Kelly said. “I don’t have to go through radiation treatment and chemo, which is a blessing. From what I’ve been told everything that they did in surgery, if I had to do radiation or chemo it would put me way back.”

“The worst part about my cancer is it’s right here in the area of my mouth,” said Kelly. “They had to remove most of my jaw on my left side. It’s very, very sore, but it takes time. I know when you have knee surgery or shoulder surgery it’s sore for a small period of time and rehab and everything is good and you just take your time. “I want to thank personally everybody from this area,” said Kelly of the Western New York community. “This community has rallied around me when I played for the Bills, when my son Hunter was diagnosed and of course my latest setback with cancer.
