Kelly released a statement Thursday vowing to beat cancer and preserve his former team's long-term future at the same time.

Kelly says radiation and chemotherapy treatments for sinus cancer are going well, but notes he's "not out of the woods."

As for the Bills, Kelly remains interested in joining a prospective ownership group to buy the team. Kelly's brother, Dan, said he's had several conversations with at least one candidate, New York City developer Donald Trump.
