MIAMI - Hall of fame quarterback Jim Kelly will not be undergoing surgery on Thursday.

The former University of Miami quarterback is battling cancer.

His wife said Wednesday that Kelly will not have an operation because "the cancer is in areas that surgery cannot successfully eradicate."

Kelly will be treated with chemotherapy and radiation.

The former Bills star was diagnosed with upper jaw cancer last June.
