INDIANAPOLIS – The Indianapolis Colts are eagerly anticipating Chuck Pagano's return, and it could happen as early as Monday.
When he does come back, it will force the Colts to make yet another change.
Players and coaches already had to adapt once to the shocking news after their bye week that Pagano was taking an indefinite leave from the team. He began chemotherapy treatments to battle leukemia and offensive coordinator Bruce Arians took over as interim coach.
Indy rallied to win its next game against Green Bay, and has gone 8-3 since Pagano has been out.
But now, needing one more win to clinch a playoff spot, things are about to change again. And those around the organization can't wait.
