Buffalo Bills legend Jim Kelly is celebrating a major milestone.

Jill Kelly posted a video to instagram , showing Jim drinking for the first time since surgery. Kelly had a feeding tube removed.

In the video, you can see there are structural changes to his face from the surgery. Doctors operated on Kelly for 12 hours last month after his third oral cancer diagnosis. 

The all-time leading passer for the Bills is recovering from oral cancer surgery at The Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City.
