INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Colts home games could be blacked out on television in the Indianapolis area this season if the team doesn't sell all its tickets.

Chief Operating Officer Pete Ward tells The Indianapolis Star the team has 2,000 season tickets still to be sold. If those don't sell, the team will try to sell tickets for individual games.

The NFL recently eased its TV blackout rules, allowing local telecasts if 85 percent of seats are sold. Teams that air games without a sellout must pay the visiting team additional money for each ticket sold beyond 85 percent.

The Colts are in a rebuilding year after releasing quarterback Peyton Manning and several veterans and drafting new quarterback Andrew Luck.
