ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - Follow up tests have revealed that Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly shows no sign of having sinus cancer three months after completing radiation and chemotherapy treatments.

Kelly was informed of the test results by his doctor, Peter Costantino, who heads New York City's Lenox Hill Hospital's head and neck institute. The update was provided in a news release issued by Kelly on Thursday, less than a week after he had biopsies performed at the hospital.

The results confirm an initial physical exam Kelly had two weeks ago.

Kelly calls the update as "some of the greatest news I've ever gotten."

Earlier in the day, Kelly and former teammate, Hall of Fame running back Thurman Thomas, attended the Bills' practice session.
