It’s truly heartwarming to see how the Indianapolis Colts are rallying around their head coach as he battles leukemia.
On Tuesday, Colts owner Jim Irsay tweeted that players were shaving their heads to honor Chuck Pagano and his fight with cancer.
Buzzed heads abound in our locker room right now in honor of Chuck!

The Colts specialists were the first to show off their new hair-dos via Twitter. Long snapper Matt Overton sent out a picture of he, punter Pat McAfee and kicker Adam Vinatieri posing bald in the Colts’ locker room.

Pagano gave an emotional speech following the Colts’ 23-20 win over the Dolphins on Sunday. It was the first time he had entered Lucas Oil Stadium since he was diagnosed with leukemia. Pagano’s doctor, Dr. Larry Cripe, told The Associated Press on Monday that the Colts’ coach’s cancer was in “complete remission.”
