Buffalo Bills legend Jim Kelly underwent a follow-up surgery Thursday and the initial word from his wife is that he is doing well and recovering.

Buffalo Bills great Jim Kelly is set to receive an ESPY award next month, but first came some more surgery.

Kelly underwent another procedure Thursday and Bills fans were waiting to hear an update. His wife, Jill Kelly, provided an update on Instagram that said he is still in pain, but is now recovering.

Kelly could easily be doing all this privately, but him and his family continue to provide updates and inspirational messages throughout the process. That takes a special person and a special family to remain positive throughout this process, but that is why Kelly is so loved in Buffalo.

The good news from this latest update is that Kelly is in recovery. The surgery he went through was rather brutal, and as his wife said it involves some pain. That is why it will be amazing the next time Kelly appears at a Bills game. The cheers may register seismic activity.

We will be following any more updates that come out and hopefully Kelly is able to make it to the ESPYS next month. No one will blame him if he can’t make it. However, he is the kind of person who will show up even if he is feeling awful. That is exactly why he is receiving the award in the first place.

Bills fans are hoping to find the next Jim Kelly on the field, but it will be hard to find another man like him who also shows so much courage and determination off the field as well. We here at BuffaLowDown wish him and his family the best and know that Bills Mafia will continue to be vocal in their support of the Bills legend on Twitter.
