INDIANAPOLIS (AP)

The Indianapolis Colts plan to honor coach Chuck Pagano by selling T-shirts, handing out wristbands and promoting a blood drive.

Pagano was diagnosed last week with a form of leukemia and has been undergoing treatment at an Indianapolis hospital.

Beginning Friday, the team's pro shop will sell special edition Chuckstrong T-shirts for $20. Proceeds, team officials say, will benefit leukemia research at the Indiana University Simon Cancer Center.

Indy also is encouraging fans to support Pagano by participating in a five-day blood drive run by the Indiana Blood Center. Those who donate starting Tuesday will get a card that can be sent to Pagano and posters of the coach.

The Colts also plan to collect money for leukemia research and distribute wrist bands outside Lucas Oil Stadium on Oct. 21.
