Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano has concluded his final round of chemotherapy as he fights his battle with leukemia, according to the Indianapolis Star.

Pagano will now begin the process of regaining his strength and health and hopefully getting back to coaching.

"Things are going well," said Dr. Larry Cripe of the Indiana University Health Simon Cancer Center. "He's received all of the chemotherapy he was to receive. Now it's just a matter of over the next couple of weeks recovering back to health. He can start conditioning and moving towards what he wants to do, which is return to coaching."

There is the possibility Pagano could be back coaching the Colts by their regular-season finale on Dec. 30 against Houston and any playoff games the 8-4 club might be involved in.
