Former Colts’ head coach Chuck Pagano gives advice to RB Jonathan Taylor

Chuck Pagano on Jonathan Taylor situation

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Sunday on “Countdown to Kickoff”, Indy’s only hour-long Colts’ pregame television show, Chuck Pagano joined live from his home in Boise, Idaho, and gave his advice to Colts’ star running back Jonathan Taylor.

Taylor is currently on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list but is eligible to return to the lineup as early as Week 5 against the Titans.

“They are not going to trade him, and he’s not getting a new contract,” Chuck said. “Let’s get back out there JT. This team, this city, this organization needs you. If you get out on the field and you do your thing and you play really, really well like we know you can, everything else will take care of itself.”

Watch the video below to hear the full conversation from Pagano in the segment, “Chuck Checks IN.”

Chucks talks about Head Coach Shane Steichen, rookie quarterback Anthony Richardson, and more.
