New York, N.Y.- Former Bills QB and Hall of Famer Jim Kelly's doctor at the New York Head & Neck Institute at Lenox Hill says cancer treatments have eliminated Kelly's pain and that initial tests show no evidence cancerous cells are still present in his jaw and sinuses.

Jim Kelly underwent follow-up cancer evaluations after completing radiation and chemotherapy three months ago in New York City.

"The treatments so far have completely eliminated Mr. Kelly's pain, and his level of function has essentially returned to normal. Further, on physical examination, there is no evidence of the cancer," said Dr. Peter Costantino, the Executive Director of the Institute.
