Offensive coordinator will not coach today. Very sick with the flu. Must be really bad in order for him to miss today's game.

Per NFL Network and PFT (http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/01/06/bruce-arians-hospitalized-will-not-coach-vs-ravens/)

Bruce Arians, the Indianapolis offensive coordinator who served as head coach for most of the season while Chuck Pagano was battling leukemia, has been hospitalized with an illness and will not coach today against the Ravens.


Bob Kravitz ‏of the Indianapolis Star reports (https://twitter.com/bkravitz) that Arians missed Thursday’s practice with flu-like symptoms but was feeling good enough that he traveled with the team to Baltimore for today’s game. However, Arians fell ill again on Sunday morning and has been taken to a Baltimore-area hospital.


Arians’ illness is not believed to be serious. A Colts spokesman described Arians as “fine.”


For today’s game, assistant coach Clyde Christensen will serve as the offensive coordinator.

More adversity for the Colts, who seem to thrive on the emotional response. Still think this will be a Ravens win.

Well, they might win if they can get a good shot in during the game of Arians crying because he can't be there for the team. What's the betting line?

I would hate to think that this could be a way of giving the team, control and credit fully back to Peragano. Either way, I wish Arians the best in health and future success.

Don't drink the water in Indy.

I hope he's OK. I hate the flu, had it a couple of times and it just really sucks.

I think this really hurts the Colts.
