Jim Kelly battling cancer of the jaw

"I am extremely confident in my road to recovery," Kelly said. "I plan to tackle this challenge head on, as we Kellys always do, with toughness, perseverance and faith."

Concerns about the 53-year-old's health were first raised last week when his wife, Jill Kelly, posted a message published on imgur.com. Without going into detail, Jill Kelly noted that the family was going through a "more serious battle under our roof," and asked followers to pray for her husband "for healing."

Jim Kelly was, is, and always will be one of the good guys in sports.

I hope he recovers fully. He is on that NY State ad trying to attract business.

I feel sorry that he was on the losing end of four straight SBs.
