Indianapolis Colts coach Chuch Pagano's leukemia in remission

The doctor for Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano says his leukemia is in remission.

Dr. Larry Cripe tells The Associated Press that Pagano's white blood cell count was normal and his bone marrow showed no indication of the disease.

Interim coach Bruce Arians says the 5-3 Colts hoped to have Pagano back on the sideline for their regular-season finale Dec. 30. Pagano spoke to his players before and after Sunday's 23-20 victory over Miami.

Pagano was diagnosed with leukemia Sept. 26.
