Daughter says Jim Kelly had gallbladder removed

Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly has had his gallbladder removed, his daughter Erin Kelly-Bean wrote on social media Friday night.

Erin noted that her mother, Jill, has been in the hospital since Wednesday battling pneumonia and "within 24 hours my dad was in the room next to her after having to get his gallbladder removed." Erin then asked for prayers for her family.

It is unclear what precipitated Jim Kelly needing to have his gallbladder removed. Kelly has battled head and neck cancer and was at the Super Bowl last week to help raise awareness and money for cancer patient organizations.

Here is Erin's post from her Instagram account:

Jim Kelly posted on Instagram Saturday morning that "Jill still needs all our prayers" and noted that he was heading to spend some time at the annual Hunter's Day of Hope and Prayer for Children at the Bills' field house.

Fans responded to the posts with well wishes and support for the Kelly family.
