Indianapolis Indiana. Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star newspaper reports Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano sent an email to his team. Interim head coach Bruce Arians will read the email to his players on Saturday.
Arians said of the email from Pagano "Very private. He sent it to every player. Very long...When you read it by yourself, it's very emotional. I don't know if I can get it out to the team. I might assign someone to read it."
Pagano was admitted to a hospital in Indianapolis on September 26 with leukemia. Indianpolis Colts wide receiverwent to visit Pagano this week. Wayne was playing college football at the University of Miami in 1996 when Pagano was his coach. Wayne said Pagano was in good spirits and was telling jokes.
In 2006, Wayne lost his brother in a auto accident and Reggie had to find a way to play football a week later after his loss of his brother.
