Jim Kelly takes first steps since cancer-removal surgery

Jim Kelly

Slowly but surely, Jim Kelly is making progress in his recovery from his latest surgery.

The former Buffalo Bills quarterback underwent surgery on Wednesday to remove cancer from his jaw and lymph nodes. The surgery involved reconstructing his jaw using part of his fibula. That means not only is he writing messages on a board to communicate due to the jaw surgery, but his leg also is recovering.

The good news is Kelly on Sunday took his first steps since the operation. His daughter, Erin, shared a video of Kelly walking.

The Instagram post also showed the message Kelly wrote on a board to say happy Easter to everyone and thank them for their prayers.

This is the third time since 2013 that Kelly has been treated for cancer. The Hall of Famer revealed last month that his cancer had returned, leading to this procedure.
