Hall of Fame QB Jim Kelly recovering after 12-hour surgery to remove oral cancer

Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly underwent a successful 12-hour surgery Wednesday in New York City to remove oral cancer and reconstruct the former Bill’s upper jaw.

We successfully removed Mr. Kelly’s cancer from his upper jaw and lymph nodes from his neck, Dr. Mark Urken, head and neck surgeon at Mount Sinai West, said in a statement to ESPN. We then reconstructed his upper jaw. Mr. Kelly is resting comfortably post-operatively.

Earlier this month, Kelly announced that his cancer had returned. He’s now been treated for cancer three times. Kelly had surgery in 2013 to remove oral cancer, then underwent chemotherapy in 2014 when cancer was discovered in his sinuses.

He really did. He got his invite late and he wrested all the headlines from the bumper crop of quarterbacks present.

The answer there is an unequivocal yep. Reid, by the way, is about to enter his 20th season as a head coach. He’s done that without ever taking so much as a season off; 14 years in Philadelphia then a jump to Kansas City for the last five seasons and counting. That came after seven years as an offensive assistant under Mike Holmgren in Green Bay. Yeah, he’s a lifer.

And while we’re on the subject of Super Bowl rings, Reid did get one with the Packers, but he’s still looking for that first elusive ring as a head coach. I asked him in Orlando if he’d give up a pinky toe if it meant a guaranteed Super Bowl victory in the next seven years. He did not hesitate in his answer.

Right now.

Just five months after signing Alec Ogletree to a lucrative new contract extension, the Rams turned around and traded the star linebacker to the Giants.

What did Los Angeles’ brass see down the stretch last season that inspired the sudden about-face
