Update: Surgery canceled for Jim Kelly

(WGR 550) -- A legend in Buffalo for his time with the Bills, a Pro Football Hall of Fame member and one of the most beloved members of the community is fighting a disease that has plagued so many people from different walks of life.

Former Bills quarterback Jim Kelly is battling cancer, and his wife Jill Kelly has provided the latest update on his status. The Kelly's flew to New York City in order to have Jim undergo surgery to help remove part of the disease from the affected areas.

That is no longer the course of action, according to Jill's latest post on her Facebook account:

"At this point, Jim will not be having surgery. The cancer is in areas that surgery cannot successfully eradicate. Therefore, the medical specialists here in NYC along with our Buffalo team believe that chemotherapy and radiation are the best option."

What do you think about the Bills acquisition of Matt Cassel?
  I like it. They can win with Cassel, a strong run game and great defense.
  I don't like it. He's done nothing since his big year in 2010.
  The Bills should still bring in another QB to compete.
