Wife: Jim Kelly will not undergo surgery
New York -- Buffalo Bills legend Jim Kelly will not undergo surgery, according to his wife, Jill.
On Wednesday afternoon, she said her husband wont have surgery due to the complexity and aggressive nature of his cancer.
Via Facebook, Jill Kelly wrote: "The cancer is in areas that surgery cannot successfully eradicate. Therefore, the medical specialists here in NYC along with our Buffalo team believe that chemotherapy and radiation are the best option."
Just last week, Kelly's doctors confirmed that his jaw cancer had returned and, in fact, spread.
Kelly was scheduled to undergo surgery Thursday when news came Wednesday that the plan had changed.
Kelly will begin cancer treatment at Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan.
