Jim Kelly gets good news on latest scans

Another clean cancer scan.

That was the good news Jill Kelly shared Thursday via her Instagram account about her husband, Jim Kelly.

The post included a photo of the former Buffalo Bills quarterback and Pro Football Hall of Famer walking on a sidewalk, while pointing skyward.

"Thank YOU SO MUCH for praying and standing with us as we continue this journey...one day at a time, one prayer at a time," she wrote. "It all sounds cliche, but it’s true."

Kelly's ongoing battle with cancer and other health issues have been regularly chronicled by his family.

In January, he told The Buffalo News that the choice to be so public about his health wasn't his, but rather what Jill and his daughters prefer. Kelly added it that it stemmed from their devout faith.

"You won't believe how many times I told my wife, 'No, do not put that out there. No, don't do that. No, Erin, don't do that,'" Kelly told The News. "Because I don't want everybody knowing my business and I’ve always been that way. But I do understand now, by being a Christian, how important it is to have people praying for you and how important it is when I travel to hear people tell me that they are praying for me. I mean, I’m not talking a couple of people. I'm talking thousands. I mean, I go through the airport and people come up to me and say, 'Jim, we’re praying for you.' "
