INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano is expected to attend Sunday's game against Miami - his first since being diagnosed with leukemia.
Pagano was hospitalized from Sept. 26 until Oct. 21, when doctors released him to return home. He showed up for a staff meeting Monday before interim coach Bruce Arians sent him home. Team owner Jim Irsay indicated on Twitter earlier this week that it was possible Pagano would be cleared to attend the game.
Pagano was expected to remain in a controlled environment during the game so he could avoid the risk of infection.
The 52-year-old coach is scheduled to begin a second round of chemotherapy this week.
