Jim Kelly takes next step in cancer surgery recovery

Former Bills quarterback Jim Kelly took the next big step in his recovery from cancer surgery.

"The TRACH is out," his wife, Jill Kelly, posted on Instagram. "... Your love and prayers have sustained, encouraged, and helped our family more than you will ever know."

A tracheotomy is a procedure that opens up the windpipe to help with breathing.

Kelly had the surgery on March 28 at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York to remove a cancer cell from his upper right jaw and reconstruct his entire upper jaw.
