The "serious illness" that has hospitalized #Colts coach Chuck Pagano, as has been reported by Indianapolis Star, is leukemia, per sources.
Pagano's leukemia is considered "very treatable" but he is in isolation at Indianapolis hospital during this treatment.
Pagano told by doctors he can expect to be hospitalized about six weeks. He thought "football fatigue" since camp but was bruising easily.
Offensive coordinator Bruce Arian will be the #Colts interim coach but, again, doctors have told Pagano his chances of recovering are good.
Obviously, that is Bruce Arians (not Arian) who has stepped in as interim coach for Chuck Pagano, who waited until bye week to be tested.
