Earlier this week, there was some good news out of Indianapolis when interim head coach Bruce Arians told the press that head coach Chuck Pagano attended the team’s coaches meeting.

Pagano is taking leave from the team to focus on his fight against a form of leukemia, he has a round of chemotherapy scheduled for next week according to the Indianapolis Star, so the fact that he felt well enough to come to work is a great development. There might be another one on Sunday. Colts owner Jim Irsay, in his inimitable Twitter style, hinted Friday that Pagano will be at Lucas Oil Stadium to watch his team take on the Dolphins in a game pitting two rookie quarterbacks leading winning teams.

Having Pagano in the house could be good for an emotional boost for the home team on Sunday as they try to continue making a push for a playoff spot well ahead of schedule.
