Acute promyelocytic leukemia is a blood cancer that is caused by the accumulation of immature white blood cells.

Pagano took a three month leave of absence because he was diagnosed with cancer.
However, when his cancer went into remission, Pagano returned to the sidelines later that season for the team's playoff run.
In addition, Pagano's treatment and recovery inspired the "CHUCKSTRONG" rallying cry for the Colts franchise and the NFL as a whole.
The Texans selected Metchie with the No. 44 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Former Alabama player and product of the NCAA, he played his junior season and scored 96 receptions for 1,142 receiving yards with 8 touchdowns
