Colts to read players long email from Pagano

The Indianapolis Colts' emotions will be running as high as is imaginable for an early regular-season game Sunday against the Packers, though whether that ultimately helps them or drains them is less certain. Coach Chuck Pagano's leukemia diagnosis, which probably will cause him to miss the rest of the season while he undergoes treatment, has rocked the franchise this week. The players were informed Monday, so they've had a few days to acclimate to the news, and today interim coach Bruce Arians plans to read to the team a long email Pagano wrote this week. "When you read it by yourself, it's very emotional," Arians was quoted in the Indianapolis Star. "I don't know if I can get it out to the team. I might assign someone to read it." Receiver Reggie Wayne, who was a player at the University of Miami when Pagano was an assistant coach there, visited his coach in the hospital Tuesday. "I sat with him a little while," Wayne said. "He's doing good, man. I was kind of surprised how good he was. He's the same. He was joking. "He's looking at it straight in the eyes. He understands what's going on. He understands the tough task ahead of him. If there's somebody that can go in and hit this out of the ballpark, it's him."
