Wednesday November 26th, 2014

Hall of Fame Bills quarterback Jim Kelly will lead his former team onto the field for Sunday's game against the Browns, the team announced Wednesday

Kelly, who led Buffalo to four consecutive Super Bowls in the 1990's, was treated for sinus cancer this summer. Tests in August found that Kelly was cancer-free

Sunday's game will the Bills' first home game since the Buffalo area was buried under up to seven feet of snow. The storm forced the NFL to move last week's game against the Jets to Detroit.

The team finished clearing the snow from the stadium on Monday and announced on Tuesday that Sunday's game against the Browns would proceed as scheduled

Kelly was honored in October by the University of Miami, his alma mater. Kelly was the Grand Marshal of the school's homecoming festivities and served as an honorary captain for the Hurricanes' game against North Carolina. The team also wore "Kelly Tough" decals on its helmets.
