The Colts Authority:
Mike Chappell of The Indianapolis Star reported Saturday afternoon that Colts Coach Chuck Pagano may be able to attend Sunday's game, citing none other than the Colts' colorful owner, Jim Irsay (from Twitter):
“Chuck is so strong n is endowed with his strength of more than 10 Monsters,that if u happen 2 c him @ LOS on Sun;u wont b imagining things,’’ Irsay wrote.
NFL.com reported the same thing Saturday.
On Sunday, the first-year coach, who has been an inspiration to Colts players and fans as he continues his battle with leukemia, could get the chance to meet with players again. Only this time, Pagano would see them during a game.
We already know Pagano attended a team meeting on Monday. Whether or not he comes to the stadium, it's good to know he's doing well and able to stay involved.

It looked like the Indianapolis Colts would have several key
starters today against the Miami Dolphins, as linebackers Pat Angerer, Dwight
Freeney and Robert Mathis and running back Donald Brown were all listed as
probable entering the weekend. However, Brown has been downgraded to questionable
and he could miss today’s pivotal matchup due to a knee injury, reports ESPN.
INDIANAPOLIS - It looks like Andrew Luck needed only half a season to establish himself as a worthy successor to Peyton Manning. Luck completed 30 of 48 passes for 433 yards and two touchdowns in the Colts' 23-20 win over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium. The 433 yards set an NFL rookie record. Cam Newton had set the record with 432 yards last season. "...

After yet another close victory last weekend against the Titans, the Colts return home to welcome an equally surprising Dolphins team to Lucas Oil Stadium. The visit of Ryan Tannehill again pits Andrew Luck against a rookie counterpart, and (as is the case with Brandon Weeden) both quarterbacks have reason to lament the quality of receiver they're throwing to, so it should be...
If the NFL playoffs were to start next week, today’s 1 p.m. matchup between the Indianapolis Colts and the Miami Dolphins, both 4-3, would decide a wild-card spot.
