About two dozen Indianapolis Colts players, including rookie quarterback Andrew Luck, shaved their heads Tuesday in support of head coach Chuck Pagano, who is battling leukemia. Pagano is in remission, but he is scheduled to undergo two more rounds of chemotherapy. The coach is on leave from the team as he undergoes treatment.

“We’re a family and the coach is almost like a father figure," Colts punter Pat McAfee told the Indianapolis star. "When something happens, you want to rally behind him."

McAfee, kicker Adam Vinatieri, running back Donald Brown, and cornerback Darius Butler are among the players who shaved their heads. More players are expected to participate before Indianapolis takes on Jacksonville this week.
