Colts' coach enters his second round of chemotherapy for leukemia this week.
Indianapolis Colts' players shaved their heads Tuesday in support of head coach Chuck Pagano, who enters the second round of chemotherapy in his fight against leukemia this week. Pagano saw his team in action live for the first time since his Sept. 26 diagnosis last Sunday and gave a heartfelt postgame speech after the Colts closed out a 23-20 win over the Miami Dolphins.
Pagano was informed Monday that his cancer is in remission. After this round of treatment, if all goes well, Pagano will undergo one more round of chemotherapy treatment. The Colts hope to have him back on the sidelines for their season finale at home against the Houston Texans on Dec. 30.
Colts' punter Pat McAfee, a must-follow on Twitter @PatMcAfeeShow, tweeted pictures of the team's barbering line and defensive tackle Cory Redding's freshly shaved head. Long snapper Matt Overton tweeted a picture with McAfee and the newly bald kicker Adam Vinatieri.
