BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Jim Kelly is undergoing back surgery this morning. In an Instagram post, his wife Jill said Jim has a cyst pushing up against his spinal cord that needs to be removed.

She's asking Western New Yorkers to pray for the former quarterback, and called this latest surgery, "another mountain to climb." Kelly's surgery was scheduled to start at 7:30 a.m.
