Stay-at-home Buffalo Bills fans should get to see at least one home game this season.

The Bills report only single seats remain for the Miami game Nov. 2 at Rich Stadium.

There are only 5,000 tickets remaining for the next home game, Oct. 26 against Denver. The Bills have 30,000 tickets left for the game against New England on Nov. 9.
Indianapolis defensive end Tony Bennett, who had three sacks in the first game with the Bills, will not play Monday. He recently had arthroscopic knee surgery.

Three other Colts starters are questionable: linebackers Elijah Alexander (groin) and Stephen Grant (neck) and tight end Ken Dilger (hamstring).
Besides Todd Collins, starting cornerback Jeff Burris (hamstring) and receiver Steve Tasker (groin) also are questionable for the Colts game but they all practiced.
New No. 3 quarterback Jim Ballard joined the team Thursday and was busy studying the plays. Ballard, cut by the Bills in preseason, was stunned to get called.

He has been back home in Alliance, Ohio, working as a substitute teacher.

"I got home from school and there was a message to call my agent," Ballard said.

"He didn't make it sound like a big deal. I almost didn't call him because I was planning to go to the Garth Brooks concert with my wife and a couple of friends. But I called and he said, 'Pack your bags.' I said, 'What?'

"I'm still excited, and I feel very fortunate to have another opportunity."
