Andrew Luck shaves head to support coach Chuck Pagano

NFL

Andrew Luck has joined his teammates in their shaven heads movement to support coach Chuck Pagano as he undergoes treatment for leukemia.

Over 25 Colts players have now shaved their heads. Director of player engagement David Thornton had a barber waiting in the locker room after Tuesday’s practice.

Long snapper Matt Overton tweeted a picture of himself and teammates Pat McAfee and Adam Vinatieri sporting the new look.

Pagano’s treatment is going well so far; his physician reported Monday that the coach’s illness is in “complete remission” and tests were normal. Pagano was even able to attend Sunday’s game in-person, watching the Colts win their third straight game.¬†On Monday, interim coach Bruce Arians expressed his hope that Pagano would return to full coaching duties this season.
