Buffalo, N.Y. (WHAM) - Former Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly is fighting cancer again.

In a statement released Thursday morning, Kelly said the oral cancer he had beaten twice has come back.

Kelly was first diagnosed in 2013. He beat the disease once and was declared cancer free, only to see it resurface again.

Earlier this year, Kelly teamed up with Merck for an initiative called Your Cancer Game Plan, sharing helpful advice for all those affected by cancer.

The Buffalo Bills offered their support with this statement:

"We are deeply saddened to hear the news about Jim Kelly and his impending battle with cancer. Jim is a tough and courageous man and we know he will fight this battle with strength and determination. The Buffalo Bills will support the Kelly family during this trying time and we ask our fans to pray for the family as Jim begins the treatment process and the road to recovery."
