Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly has completed his first round of chemotherapy as he undergoes treatment for a recurrence of oral cancer.
Kelly’s wife, Jill, delivered the news with a Tuesday night tweet:

First round of chemo. DONE. ✅ Be glorified even in this Lord! #PrayersForJK

Kelly’s chemotherapy treatments, scheduled to take place at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City, will be repeated in three weeks and again in six weeks. He is scheduled to undergo daily radiation treatments at North Shore-LIJ Cancer Institute on Long Island.
Doctors will wait two to three months following Kelly’s chemotherapy and radiation treatments to determine if he needs surgery.
Kelly, 54, underwent surgery in Buffalo last June to remove cancerous cells in his jaw. He was diagnosed with a recurrence of cancer in his maxillary sinus and adjacent tissues last month.
Kelly was the Buffalo Bills’ starting quarterback from 1986-96, during which time the team earned an unprecedented four consecutive trips to the Super Bowl, losing each time.
ESPN.com Bills reporter Mike Rodak and Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPNNewYork.com contributed to this report.
