Former NFL quarterback Jim Kelly was recovering Wednesday night in a New York City hospital after undergoing nearly 12 hours of surgery for oral cancer.
We successfully removed Mr. Kelly’s cancer from his upper jaw and lymph nodes from his neck, Dr. Mark Urken, the operating surgeon, said in a statement to the Buffalo News. We then reconstructed his upper jaw. Mr. Kelly is resting comfortably post-operatively.
We are asking for those prayers once again, Kelly said. With all of you by my side, we will fight and win this battle together.

As silly as it sounds, God gave us the #12 computer. And almost 12 hours of surgery later鈥?#12 is now on the road to recovery. I’ll be posting more details soon, but wanted to say THANK YOU for praying and standing on the promises of God!

You see it on the field, Bowles said. There’s not too much you’re going to get out of him at the combine in 15 minutes. You’ve got to ask all type of football questions.
