A pleasant surprise at Buffalo Bills camp when a special visitor showed up for practice. That visitor was Hall of Famer Jim Kelly -- who is still in the midst of his battle with cancer.

After nearly two months of radiation and chemo, Kelly looked physically weak, yet the Hall of Fame quarterback was determined to get on the field Thursday and do what he does best: lead the Buffalo Bills.

Kelly addressed the team before practice, preaching how special he believes this year will be.

He broke the huddle with the chant: "one, two, three, playoffs."

It was an uplifting scene, with Kelly out in public, instead of in a hospital. It's been about three weeks since Jim completed treatments. He will continue the recovery over the next 3 to 5 weeks and then will undergo an MRI to see if the cancer has been eradicated.
