Jim Kelly, a Buffalo Bills Hall of Fame quarterback, is apparently cancer free after struggling with sinus cancer since last year. However, the former NFL quarterback issued a statement today saying he is “not completely out of the woods yet.”

“The pain from the cancer is gone, and I’m improving on a daily basis,” Kelly said. “I’m eating more, and my strength is returning slowly but surely. I’m not a very patient person by nature, so I get frustrated, but I’m very blessed.”

The 54-year-old former football player was given a clean bill of health on Wednesday. Dr. Peter Costantino, executive director of Lenox Hill Hospital’s New York Head and Neck Institute, noted that there was not signs of cancer in Kelly.

Despite that, Kelly explained in an interview with ESPN that he will still need to go back to NYC soon to get some additional tests done, just to make sure doctors have completely eradicated the cancer with chemotherapy and radiation.

“I’m not completely out of the woods yet,” Kelly explained. “It’s always something. I have my faith, I continue to pray, I continue to get well-wishes from everybody across the country. Words cannot tell you how much it means to me.”

Kelly concluded his interview by making sure that everyone knows he’s “got a lot left to accomplish, so I’m going to be around for a while, no matter what.”
