Colts owner Jim Irsay tweeted out prayers to head coach Chuck Pagano, who has leukemia.

Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano has been diagnosed with a treatable form of leukemia, according to several reports. The Colts haven't officially said anything and they won't until a Monday morning press conference but Colts owner Jim Irsay tweeted out prayers to Pagano and his family.

The news is stunning to so many in and around not only the Colts organization but the NFL world. It's not the news you expect to hear on an NFL team on Monday morning.

According to Mike Freeman of CBSSports.com, Colts players have been told of the situation.

The Colts are on a bye and did not play on Sunday.
