Chris Mortensen of ESPN is reporting that the serious illness Chuck Pagano has is a treatable form of leukemia:
The sources said Pagano waited until the Colts' bye week last week to be checked out after experiencing extreme fatigue and bruising, starting in training camp.
Pagano, as we've learned during his time so far in Indy, is a heck of a guy and a masterful motivator. I will try to find more links to more information, hopefully a specific type and prognosis if it is made available. Our thoughts and best wishes go out to Coach Pagano, his family, and the Colts.
Check out Pagano's powerful motivational skills on YouTube here.
I don't have anything to link to yet other than twitter, but Pagano has Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia (APML). It has a good outlook as far as remission according to his doctor.
