‘No. 12 is now on the road to recovery,’ says Jim Kelly’s wife, Jill, after his cancer surgery
Jill Kelly provided that much-anticipated update Wednesday night after her husband, Buffalo Bills Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly, went through a grueling surgery in New York City to treat a recurrence of oral cancer.
Surgery is complete, Jill Kelly wrote in an Instagram post. Thank GOD and the amazing team of doctors and nurses that took care of Jim today…and will continue to take care of him as he heads into a very significant time of recovery.
We assume worst-case on any situations, whether it’s the money or availability, especially if players are facing suspensions, Jones said, via ESPN. Obviously last year when we knew [Ezekiel Elliott] faced a possible suspension we kept extra running backs, assuming worst case.

I think we’ll see it have a great effect on one element of this helmet [issue] in how we want the game to be played, Payton said, via the Washington Post. I think you’ll still see the physicality. This is the one posture [that’s affected] — we’ll remove it.
Not all current and former players see the change that way.
Craig Steltz, former LSU and Rummel football star, sues NFL over traumatic brain injuries More Former Rummel and LSU football star Craig Steltz, who helped lift the Tigers to a national championship as a hard-hitting safety in 2007, is suing the National Football League over traumatic brain injuries he says he suffered playing for the Chicago Bears. Steltz, who just missed the cutoff date for the national settlement that covered some 20,000 former NFL players, filed the lawsuit Tuesday in New Orleans federal court. He lives in Jefferson Parish. The lawsuit says Steltz sustained repetitive, traumatic sub-concussive and/or concussive head impacts while he played for the Bears between 2008 and 2014, but it does not go into further detail about the nature of his health problems.
