Jill Kelly: Jim Kelly's 'recovery is slow. Doctors are very optimistic'

Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly continues to improve following reconstructive jaw surgery, his wife Jill posted on Instagram on Sunday night.

Jill posted a photo of Kelly at the window of the hospital joined by his daughter Camryn, who arrived last week to spend time with the family.

"Quick Update: Although Jim’s recovery is slow, the doctors are very optimistic. He still has a feeding tube and trach, because he’s not able to take anything by mouth yet due to swelling. Everything else is still healing. And we’re still praying and praising God!!

Kelly endured 12 hours of surgery 10 days ago following a recurrence of oral cancer.
