Chuck Pagano beat the traffic and a blizzard into work Wednesday morning - all in an effort to beat the Texans. After spending the last three months fighting leukemia, the inspirational Colts coach arrived early at the team complex. He met briefly with his players to give them a succinct message about this week's game plan, then stepped onto the practice field for the first time since Sept. 26. While Pagano wanted to take a business-as-usual approach into his first regular workday, it certainly wasn't easy amid all the outside stuff.

INDIANAPOLIS - Chuck Pagano was so eager to get back to work Monday, he was the first one to show up at team headquarters. Long before meeting with his players, the Colts' first-year coach drove quietly into the complex, walked into the office where the lights have remained on for nearly three months, and began preparing for Sunday's game against AFC South champion Houston as if it were another day at the office. Hardly. It was the biggest milestone yet in an incredibly emotional season in which Pagano has beaten leukemia and the Colts have been a most pleasant surprise in reaching the playoffs under interim coach Bruce Arians.

THE COLTS defeated the visiting Bills, 20-13, Sunday. But the biggest winners in Lucas Oil Stadium were two Indianapolis cheerleaders who shaved their heads in support of Colts head coach Chuck Pagano, who was diagnosed with leukemia earlier this season. Two weeks ago, cheerleader Megan M. said she would shave her head if she and Blue, the team mascot, could raise $10,000 for the Colts' "ChuckStrong" campaign. They more than doubled that amount, raising $22,670, and Megan agreed to live up to her end of the deal.

BALTIMORE - There's no telling how effective Ray Lewis will be Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts after missing 12 weeks with a torn right triceps. Fortunately, for the Ravens, he's already provided an emotional lift. With his announcement that he will step into retirement after Baltimore completes its 2013 playoff run, Lewis gave the slumping Ravens a boost heading into their wild-card game. "Just having him back on the field is an inspiration," Baltimore defensive coordinator Dean Pees said.

INDIANAPOLIS - In a somber news conference Monday, the Indianapolis Colts announced that head coach Chuck Pagano had been hospitalized for leukemia treatment and probably would not return to full coaching duties this season. He will be replaced on an interim basis by former Temple coach Bruce Arians, the offensive coordinator. "He will do fine," Arians said of Pagano, his voice cracking as he recalled his own fight with prostate cancer in 2007. "I know him. He's a fighter. He's survived tough times already in his life.

BALTIMORE - Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano said offensive coordinator Bruce Arians was doing "fine" and was expected to be released from the hospital Monday after Arians missed Sunday's 24-9 playoff loss to the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium. A team official said that Arians was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center on Sunday with nausea and headaches. Arians, 60, was ill and left the Colts practice facility on Thursday but returned the next day. The Eagles have requested permission to interview Arians for their head coaching position.

INDIANAPOLIS - It took Chuck Pagano less than 9 months to instill his fighter's mentality and hopeful spirit in the Indianapolis Colts. He will need both to survive the biggest battle of his life - leukemia. In a somber news conference Monday - one day before Pagano's 52nd birthday - the Colts announced that their new coach had been hospitalized for cancer treatment and probably would not return to full coaching duties this season. He will be replaced on an interim basis by offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, who coached at Temple from 1983-88.

A contrite Chad Johnson apologized Monday in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., for disrespecting a judge when the former NFL star slapped his attorney on the backside in court last week. Broward County Circuit Judge Kathleen McHugh accepted Johnson's apology and cut back his jail term for a probation violation from 30 days to the seven days he had served since the rear-swatting. Johnson, a flamboyant receiver formerly known as Chad Ochocinco, said that he'd had time to think about why his flippant attitude was wrong - especially in a domestic violence case.

Temple's worst football decision in the last 25 years? No-brainer: firing Bruce Arians. Maybe it seemed like a good idea at the time, a quarter-century back, since Arians won only seven games in his final two seasons on North Broad Street. That's what you do when teams win seven games in two seasons, right? Time to bring in a new man. Unless you're Temple. Arians should have gotten a raise. Yes, it's obvious now that the man can coach. He went on to a productive career as an NFL assistant, was offensive coordinator in Pittsburgh, impressively took charge of the Indianapolis Colts this season when cancer hit head coach Chuck Pagano, and now is on the frequent-interviewee list for open head coaching spots, including with the Eagles, who are expected to meet with Arians on Tuesday.

ANDREW LUCK phoned Zach Ertz last week and the former Stanford teammates wished each other luck in their season openers. They also discussed meeting up before Monday night's game at Lucas Oil Stadium, where for the first time in each of their burgeoning professional careers they will play as opponents. Luck, the Colts' third-year quarterback, and Ertz, the Eagles' second-year tight end, are rising stars at their respective positions. Their talent was apparent early in each of their careers at Stanford, where they connected nine times for touchdowns in two seasons on the field together, in 2010 and 2011.

Bruce Arians is as old-school as Stetson hats and Remington typewriters and a Rusty Nail on the rocks. In his world, the song always sounds better on vinyl, no 21st-century sitcom comes close to being as funny as The Andy Griffith Show, and quarterbacks ought to stay in the pocket and out of harm's way. Arians is 61 years old. It has been 25 years since Temple fired him after his six seasons there as head coach, more than 30 years since he...

THE ARIZONA Cardinals filled the NFL's final head-coaching vacancy by hiring Indianapolis offensive coordinator Bruce Arians. The team confirmed the hiring in a release Thursday night, saying Arians received a 4-year contract with a club option for a fifth year. The 60-year-old Arians, a longtime NFL assistant who was Temple's head coach from 1983 to '88, went 9-3 as Colts interim head coach while Chuck Pagano was undergoing treatment for leukemia this season. Arians arrived in Arizona on Wednesday night, had dinner with top team officials, then interviewed on Thursday and met with reporters to indicate his interest in the job. He was offered and accepted the job Thursday night.

Eagles (+7 1/2) over GIANTS: It would take a Christmas miracle for the New Yorkers to get into the playoffs. The Cowboys, Vikings and Bears all have to lose. It's possible, but not probable. And with the Green Machine welcoming back Michael Vick in the season finale, and the end of Andy Reid's career in Philly, a cover is certainly on the table. Especially the way the Giants have been playing, losing and failing to cover five of the last seven. Not quite sure what it is with Andy and the New Yorkers, but the Birds have won five in a row up in North Jersey, and eight of the last nine in this division rivalry.
