INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Colts coach Chuck Pagano is already ditching his doctor’s advice.

Instead of scaling back his workload, he figures he’ll work overtime getting ready for this week’s playoff game.

One day after the cancer-beating coach found out he and his team were headed to Baltimore for the AFC’s wild-card round, the former Ravens defensive coordinator acknowledged he would spend more time than usual meeting with Indy’s offense and special teams to tell them everything he knows.

He spent three seasons as Baltimore’s secondary coach and 2011 as the team’s defensive signal-caller, giving him intricate knowledge about one of the league’s most feared defensive units. He spent four seasons going head-to-head against quarterback Joe Flacco in practice, and as a former special teams coach, he took an interest in that phase of the game, too.

That’s more information than the Ravens (10-6), or any team, would like an opponent to have.
