Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly made a surprise visit Thursday, attending Buffalo Bills practice and addressing the team before they wrapped up minicamp.

It was Kelly’s first public appearance since he finished his radiation treatments for sinus cancer and was released from the hospital earlier this month.

According to The Associated Press, head coach Doug Marrone gathered his team before the start of practice and introduced Kelly, who addressed the team. The Bills legend thanked the team for their support during his second bout with cancer and encouraged them to end their 14-year postseason drought.

Kelly led the team in a huddle before heading to the sidelines and watching the rest of practice from there.
