Colts coach Chuck Pagano is ready for his second round of chemotherapy and probably will not return to the team until he completes it.

Interim coach Bruce Arians says doctors are trying to keep Pagano in as sterile environment as possible to prevent the risk of infection.

Pagano was hospitalized Sept. 26 after he was diagnosed with leukemia. He was released from the hospital Sunday and is continuing treatment at home.

The 52-year-old coach has stayed in contact with his players, writing another note to them this week. Arians did not say what was in the note.

Arians says not being around the team is driving Pagano ''crazy,'' but he feels much better being home.
