Chuck Pagano out of the hospital, watched Colts’ win at home


Colts coach Chuck Pagano is out of the hospital and recovering at home as he continues to fight leukemia.

The Colts confirmed after today’s win over the Browns that Pagano had been watching the game from home. After being diagnosed with leukemia during the Colts’ bye week, Pagano had watched the team’s last two games from his hospital room.

Indianapolis is now 2-1 since offensive coordinator Bruce Arians took over as the interim head coach in Pagano’s absence, and their solid play without him has surely helped lift his spirits. To a man, the players and coaches who have visited Pagano in the hospital have come back saying that Pagano wanted more than anything to talk about football and to see the Colts play well.

Pagano still has a long recovery ahead of him and is not expected to return to his head-coaching duties at all this season. But after delivering a game ball to his hospital room two weeks ago, it’s a positive sign that the Colts can now deliver a game ball to his home.

  1. Good to hear regarding Coach P. Rest up & keep fighting Coach. Get well. Having said that. Another GREAT game plan by Fritz Shurmur’s nephew! Poor play calling & too many penalties, which are another sign of lousy coaching, have cost the Browns another win. Get your resume ready Lil Fritz I’m sure some team will hire you. That is, of course, your uncle asks them to.
