Jim Kelly has taken another encouraging step in his oral cancer treatment.
The former Bills quarterback on Saturday was discharged from the hospital after undergoing surgery last month to remove the disease in his upper jaw.
With a swollen smile, and a cane in his hand he was DISCHARGED from the hospital today! Praise the LORD! So THANKFUL for Dr. Mark Urken, his team, and the rest of the amazing Mount Sinai staff. The recovery continues here in NYC for the next two weeks. Then back to BUFFALO! One day at a time. One prayer at a time. All in God’s perfect timing! Thank you for praying!!
Kelly, 58, led the Bills to four straight AFC championships from 1990-93, but lost each Super Bowl appearance. A five-time Pro Bowl selection and the USFL MVP in 1984, he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2002.
Immediately after the news of his release broke, Bryant took to Twitter saying, “it’s very personal.”
He followed up those sentiments in an appearance on NFL Network calling out the coaches for how they communicated with him and said the coaches couldn’t “be a man” about cutting him from the team.
“The way this whole situation got handled, I felt like I asked some of them to be a man about the situations a long time ago and they couldn’t,” Bryant said. “I’m not talking about no players, because all of the players, you know, we A1. … I’m trying my best to sugarcoat it, but I can’t.”
When asked if he thought some of his teammates had a role in the decision to release him, Bryant blamed “(coach Jason) Garrett guys” for pushing the team toward his release, although he wouldn’t say who the “Garrett guys” are.
The only interior offensive lineman who makes sense for Dallas without being a reach is Texas’ Connor Williams. But starting with the Redskins at No. 13, several teams picking in front of the Cowboys have a need there, too. For now, it’s looking a ‘Bama pick is the first-round favorite for the Cowboys, either Ridley or Payne.
