Colts' Andrew Luck, Vontae Davis shave heads in support of Chuck Pagano

Luck's rocking a little less hair these days and it's a good thing. (

Colts owner Jim Irsay tweeted Tuesday that heads were getting shaved in the locker room in support of coach Chuck Pagano, who's currently battling leukemia.

Despite plenty of tweets and notes and pictures of newly-shorn Colts players, the big question -- Did Andrew Luck shave his head? -- hadn't been answered. Now it has:

Oh, yeah, and Vontae Davis, too. Sorry, Vontae.

Pagano's battle with leukemia has been beyond inspirational: The team (and the league) has the #CHUCKSTRONG campaign rolling in full force; they fought back against Green Bay the week after the announcement of Pagano's diagnosis; and Pagano's inspirational postgame speech after Indy toppled the Dolphins is a must-watch video.

The craziest thing of all is that the Colts are currently locked into a playoff spot, holding the No. 5 seed in the AFC heading into Week 10.

And the inspiration apparently continues to roll on, in the form of the Colts dumping their 'dos for the honorary shaved-head look. Here's hoping Luck keeps the neckbeard, though.
