Players on the Indianapolis Colts are shaving their heads in solidarity with head coach Chuck Pagano, who has begun his second course of chemotherapy treatment for leukemia.
Colts owner Jim Irsay wrote on Twitter that several players have already gone bald to show their support for Pagano.
“Buzzed heads abound in our locker room right now in honor of Chuck!” Irsay wrote.
Colts long snapper Matt Overton tweeted the picture you see here of himself, punter Pat McAfee and kicker Adam Vinatieri, all of whom shaved their heads today.
Pagano’s cancer is in remission, but he still has a long road to recovery ahead of him. He is not expected to resume his position as the head coach this season, although the Colts have expressed optimism that he could become more involved after his second course of chemotherapy is completed, and possibly be on the sideline for a game by the end of the year.
