October 2 , 2012
The head coach of the Indianapolis Colts, Chuck Pagano, has been diagnosed with leukemia.
Pagano will remain hospitalized while undergoing treatment. Offensive coordinator Bruce Arians is due to step in for him.
Pagano underwent tests last week while the Colts were on a bye and has been hospitalized and undergoing treatment since Wednesday.
Doctors have said Pagano's type of leukemia is considered to have a good chance of remission. Pagano is expected to undergo about 4 to 6 weeks of treatment and will be discharged once his blood count returns to normal levels.
