INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Chuck Pagano is back at work.

The Indianapolis Colts head coach returned to team headquarters Monday morning where he is expected to address players and coaches at a team meeting before answering questions from reporters.

Pagano took an indefinite leave from the team in late September after beginning treatments for leukemia. He completed the last of three rounds of chemotherapy earlier this month and his oncologist, Dr. Larry Cripe, says the illness is in complete remission. Last week, Cripe said he gave Pagano medical clearance to return to the team.

Pagano's return comes one day after the Colts (10-5) clinched a playoff berth. They went 9-4 in his absence.

With nine wins, interim coach Bruce Arians tied the NFL record for most wins after a midseason coaching change.
