Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano surprised his team Friday by visiting practice on Friday. Pagano, who is on leave since being diagnosed with leukemia in September, is amidst a second round of chemotherapy. Doctors recently announced that his cancer is in remission. Though he has been away from the team, he has been an inspiration to the team. "The sun was shining and he broke his team down (after) practice," interim coach Bruce Arians told the Indianapolis Star. "It was a beautiful moment again. "Called him this morning. I'm always afraid to invite him when we go indoors because of germs. But we were outside and (I said), if the doc says it's OK, please come. He came and enjoyed a good bunch of sunshine and talked to the guys." The surprising Colts enter Sunday's contest at the New England Patriots with a 6-3 record. Defensive end Cory Redding told the Star that the team appreciated his presence. "I think the guys really took the fact that he's out there, he's healthy, no mask on his face, lets us know he's winning the battle, he's winning the fight and he's that much closer to being here with us," Redding said.
