The Buffalo Bills announced that single-game tickets are sold out for the first two home games of the 2012 season.
There will be no individual-game seats available for the home opener against Kansas City on Sept. 16 and the second home game, against New England on Sept. 30. Tickets for those games still are available for fans who want to buy season tickets, because the team has held back a block of seats for those sales.
The team gave season-ticket holders the chance to buy individual-game seats on May 16, which resulted in the sell-out of the individual game allotment for the Chiefs and Pats. Group tickets go on sale on June 9. The general public can buy tickets to individual games starting on July 10.
The Bills' other five home games at Ralph Wilson Stadium this year are vs. Tennessee Oct. 21, Miami Nov. 15, Jacksonville Dec. 2, St. Louis Dec. 9 and the New York Jets Dec. 30.
Air Force RB banned
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Asher Clark, the second-leading rusher in Air Force football history, has been removed from the academy less than a week before he was scheduled to graduate, and sources indicated he was removed as part of the academy's investigation into illegal drug use.
Academy spokesman David Cannon said that Clark, a four-year starter at tailback for the Falcons, was no longer enrolled at the academy.
Cannon said he could not say why Clark was no longer at the academy, referring to the Privacy Act.
But multiple sources who did not want their names used because Air Force didn't announce the reason for Clark's departure said he was disenrolled as part of the investigation into illegal drug use.
A phone message left at Clark's parents' house was not returned. Attempts to reach Clark were unsuccessful. Messages to Air Force coach Troy Calhoun regarding Clark were not returned.
