FOXSports.com: Pleasant and Unpleasant Surprises at Midway Point

Indianapolis (5-3)

Pleasant: It took no time at all for the Colts to rebound from last year’s 2-14 season thanks to the rapid development of rookie quarterback Andrew Luck, standout play from wide receiver Reggie Wayne and a bend-but-don’t-break defense that has allowed 20 or fewer points in three consecutive wins. The fact that Indianapolis is doing so well after massive offseason change and with an interim head coach (Bruce Arians) who is juggling offensive coordinator duties makes such success even more remarkable.

Unpleasant: The horrific news that new head coach Chuck Pagano was suffering from leukemia. Although ongoing treatment will keep him from a quick return to the sideline, Pagano’s doctor announced Monday that he was in remission. Arians said he hopes Pagano – whose visits and pre-game messages have helped inspire the Colts -- will be back for the season-finale against Houston. - Alex Marvez (AP Photo/AJ Mast)
