Arians noted that Pagano passed out links of a chain to every player in the first week of the season and the message has taken hold: "Don't be the weak link. It's kind of a common thread throughout everything."
Also Friday, the Colts elevated cornerback Teddy Williams from the practice squad to the active roster, waiving cornerback Marshay Green in favor of a guy who didn't play college football.
Williams was a track and field standout at Texas-San Antonio and an undrafted free agent in 2010. He spent last season on the Cowboys' practice squad before he was waived in August. Williams, who ran the 100 meters in 9.9 seconds in college, was signed to the Colts practice squad on Oct. 30.
Tight end Coby Fleener and cornerback Vontae Davis will not play against the Patriots (6-3) on Sunday.
