(WHAM/CNN) – Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly appears to be cancer-free.

Doctors gave him a clean bill of health on Tuesday, saying there is no evidence of the disease.

The 54-year-old former Buffalo Bills star was first diagnosed with sinus cancer in 2013. He has surgery to remove parts of his jaw and mouth, but the cancer returned this year.

Kelly received several rounds of chemotherapy and radiation treatments in the spring.

Following a screening on Tuesday, doctors found no evidence of remaining cancer, but more tests will be conducted to determine if additional treatment is needed.
