Jim Kelly's wife, Jill, says that he is still very weak, tired and "not himself" after finishing a round of chemo and radiation treatments last month.

This comes from an update Jill posted on her blog Friday. In the post, details how Jim has been doing since finishing his latest round of treatment. Jill says that he had an appointment on Monday to determine how well he has healed since treatments ended. Jill says the doctors were also seeing if Jim could start eating normally, since the Hall of Famer is still using a feeding tube.

According to Jill, he is still feeling pretty weak, not feeling himself and has lost 44 pounds over the course of the past few months.

Jill says he continues to fight and is still "Kelly tough." Right now, the family is considering other treatments and looking at homeopathic methods as well.

On Thursday, Jim made a surprise appearance at Bills camp. He will soon undergo an MRI to determine if his cancer was eradicated.
