Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly is showing no evidence of the sinus cancer for which he was being treated, according to his doctors.

"The treatments so far have completely eliminated Mr. Kelly's pain," said Dr. Peter Costantino in a statement, "and his level of function has essentially returned to normal.

"It is possible that no further treatment will be required, and the testing over the next week will define this issue."

For treatment, Kelly has endured a number of rounds of chemotherapy as well as radiation. "I still need the prayers," he told ESPN.

Jim Kelly was diagnosed with an oral cancer in mid 2013. He underwent surgical resection, but doctors determined in March that his cancer had recurred.
