Chiefs release WR Breaston, TE Boss

Sports

February 20th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs have released wide receiver Steve Breaston and tight end Kevin Boss as part of their roster overhaul under new coach Andy Reid and general manager John Dorsey. The team announced the moves Tuesday in a statement on its website. Breaston was lured to Kansas City in 2011 by former coach Todd Haley and general manager Scott Pioli, and signed a $22.5 million, five-year deal. But he fell out of favor last season under coach Romeo Crennel, catching seven passes for 74 yards in 10 games. Boss signed $9 million, three-year deal last offseason, but only had three catches for 65 yards before sustaining a season-ending concussion in Week 2 against Buffalo.

Chiefs sign former Vikings safety Husain Abdullah

Sports

February 19th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – The Chiefs have signed former Vikings safety Husain Abdullah, who gave up football last season to make a pilgrimage to Mecca, in an attempt to add depth to their defensive backfield.  A practicing Muslim, Abdullah turned down a contract offer from Minnesota to speak at mosques across the country along with his brother, former Cardinals defensive back Hamza Abdullah.  The two of them then journeyed to Saudi Arabia.

Abdullah entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent in 2008. The former Washington State star made 24 starts in 54 games over the next four seasons for the Vikings, making 167 tackles and two sacks with four interceptions. He also was a contributor on special teams.  The Chiefs have little depth behind starting safeties Eric Berry and Kendrick Lewis.

Some ammunition harder to find in Nebraska, Iowa

News, Sports

February 18th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Ammunition for certain guns is hard to find in Nebraska and Iowa because people worried about the possibility of tougher gun control are buying it up. Demand for ammunition and guns took off after the Dec. 14 shooting in Newtown, Conn., that took the lives of 20 schoolchildren and six adults. The shortages are apparent at gun shows and many stores. Dealers say .223-caliber ammunition used in semiautomatic rifles, 9mm bullets and even .22-caliber bullets seem to be in short supply.

Terry Edwards of Palmyra, Neb. says ammunition supplies were already tight before demand surged. At a gun show in Altoona, Iowa, dealer Kevin King says many customers are afraid they won’t be able to buy the amount they want in the future, so they’re stocking up now.

ISU’s Okoro plays through family tragedy

Sports

February 18th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State freshman guard Kerwin Okoro got a brief respite from an extremely painful time when his basket capped an 87-53 victory over TCU on Saturday. It was the first action in two months for Okoro, who had just returned from his brother Idiongo’s funeral in New York. Idiongo died earlier this month of colon cancer at just 28 years old, just two months after Okoro said his 72-year-old father, Stanislaus Okoro, died of a stroke. Kerwin Okoro says the reception he got from his teammates and Cyclones fans shows how much the program has become like a family to him.
