Bills legend Jim Kelly recovers at home


ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WIVB) – Buffalo Bills legend Jim Kelly is recovering at home Tuesday morning. The Hall of Famer was released from the hospital Monday.

He just recently finished his chemotherapy and radiation treatments, for a recurrence of oral cancer.

In May, Kelly walked out of the hospital to a cheering crowd. His wife Jill says he has received his final round of radiation treatment.

“I know I could not have done this without family and friends. You guys have been there since day one. Thank you guys,” he said. “I’ve still got a long way to go, but I know with you people on my team, I’ll be here for many, many more years and many, many more parties.”

Doctors have said they are confident he can beat the disease. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
