     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The Kansas City Chiefs have released former Bismarck High and University of North Dakota standout wide receiver Weston Dressler.  The Chiefs announced the move this morning on the team website. Dressler was among 11 players cut.
 
     The Canadian Football League's Saskatchewan Roughriders released Dressler early this year to give him the opportunity to sign with an NFL team. The Chiefs signed him in February.  Dressler played six seasons with the Roughriders, topping the 1,000-yard receiving mark five times. He also was the CFL's rookie of the year in 2008 and won a Grey Cup championship with the team last year.
 
     Greg Hardin, another former UND receiver, was waived by the Denver Broncos on Sunday.

     EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings will provide athletic trainers for high school football programs in the Minneapolis and St. Paul school districts during the upcoming season.
 
     The Vikings announced today they are teaming up with TRIA Orthopaedic Center to provide certified athletic trainers for nearly 600 football players in 13 Minneapolis and St. Paul high schools.
 
     A grant from the National Football League Foundation and a matching donation from the Vikings ownership will provide $50,000 for the program.  The high school football programs will receive certified athletic training coverage from TRIA for camps, practices and competitions.
 
     Vikings head athletic trainer Eric Sugarman says athletic trainers provide care for players that can result in lower injury rates and help in making return-to-play decisions for concussions and other injuries.
