Three months after being diagnosed with leukemia, Chuck Pagano was back on the job for the Indianapolis Colts, according to the Associated Press.
Pagano took a leave of absence on Oct. 1 to begin treatments for the disease, and on Monday he returned as the team's head coach and will guide the team this week when they face the Houston Texans in the regular-season finale.
In Pagano's absence, the Colts have played well enough to clinch a playoff spot at 10-5 under interim coach Bruce Arians.
Pagano is scheduled to meet with the media later today.
