News10NBC is learning new developments on Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly’s battle with cancer. The former Bills great was released from the hospital nearly a month ago.

Thanks to Jim’s wife, Jill, we have been given updates about the former Bills quarterback. On Thursday on Instagram, Jill said her husband’s cancer hasn’t spread. Jill said they have to wait until August for a re-scan to find out if the cancer is gone.

Kelly had an aggressive treatment schedule. He underwent six weeks of chemotherapy and radiation treatment. The Hall of Fame quarterback was released from Erie County Medical Center last month. Jill also announced on her blog that Jim will be in Canton for Andre Reed’s induction in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
