Former Buffalo Bills quarterback and Hall of Famer Jim Kelly underwent a biopsy on Thursday, and preliminary results showed no return of cancer, according to a post on his wife's Instagram account.
Kelly had the procedure in New York City after his latest scans following extensive treatment for cancer of the jaw were inconclusive.
Jill Kelly posted a number of photos of her husband on social media Thursday, one of him before the procedure and one after.
The second post says that Jim Kelly said: "Thank God for all the prayers!" and "I need a chocolate milkshake!"
Jim Kelly, who led the Bills to four consecutive Super Bowl appearances in the 1990s, said last week at his annual football camp that he felt good and was cleared to work out. He first announced he had cancer in his jaw in 2013.
