Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano was able to physically attend Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins and watch from the coaches’ box at Lucas Oil Stadium, but that wasn’t enough. Coach Pagano was unavailable for comment, but he had plenty of comments for his team following its 23-20 win. In his first return to Lucas Oil Stadium since being diagnosed with leukemia, Pagano spoke to his players in a very emotional post-game speech.
Pagano was hospitalized from Sept. 26 until Oct. 21 and has been receiving chemotherapy ever since. He is scheduled to begin a second round of chemotherapy this week.
