[BN] Blitz newsletter: Jim Kelly continues to progress in recovery from surgery

While Jim Kelly is expected to remain in a New York hospital for at least two weeks after undergoing 12 hours of surgery Wednesday to reconstruct his entire upper jaw following a recurrence of oral cancer, family members have provided encouraging updates on his condition.

The Hall of Fame quarterback is unable to speak but used a wipe board to thank supporters for their prayers and offer "Happy Easter" wishes in a post Sunday on his daughter's Instagram page. Erin Kelly also reported that her father "took his first steps since surgery."

Gronk saga: So long as Tom Brady doesn't retire, Rob Gronkowski is "pretty certain" he won't either, according to an ESPN report. But the All-Pro tight end's wavering commitment since the end of last season may be a source of frustration for coach Bill Belichick.

Updated mock draft: Jay Skurski predicts the Bills will move up for a quarterback. Click through this slideshow to find out which one.

Skurski's Mailbag: Who might the Bills target at No. 12 if they don't trade up?

Pre-draft partyHuddle with News sports writers Tim Graham, Vic Carucci and Jay Skurski on April 20 to talk draft strategy and all things Bills in the shadow of The Buffalo History Museum’s exhibition, “Icons: The Makers and Moments of Buffalo Sports.”Featured within “Icons” is a sampling of The Greg D. Tranter Collection of Buffalo Bills memorabilia, in addition to artifacts from the museum's collection and private collectors. Bring your own Buffalo sports treasure and have local appraiser Rob Schilling tell you its worth.



Path to the Passer series: Louisville's Lamar Jackson is 'the most electrifying player in the draft.' | USC's Sam Darnold is a gunslinger who may go No. 1. | Is Josh Rosen a natural fit for the Bills? | Mason Rudolph presents plenty to like in a quarterback prospect ... with one notable exception. | Is Josh Allen worth a ransom? | Is Baker Mayfield the next Drew Brees?

Rex Ryan has opinions: The outspoken former coach told that he expects the Bills to trade up for Josh Allen and Tyrod Taylor "is a hell of a lot better quarterback than people give him credit for."
