Two former University of Montana football players have earned spots in NFL rosters going into the first games of the regular season while a few others are looking for work after this weekend's roster cuts. Dan Carpenter of Helena is the kicker for the Miami Dolphins while defensive end Kroy Biermann of Hardin is on the final roster for the Atlanta Falcons. Carpenter led the Dolphins in scoring during the preseason, making 7 of 8 field goals and all six of his extra points. His missed field goal was a 49-yarder. Biermann had 11 total tackles, 10 of them solo, three sacks and a pass breakup in three preseason games for the Falcons. The Dolphins released running back Lex Hilliard of Kalispell on Saturday and signed him to the practice squad Sunday. The Chicago Bears cut tackle Cody Balogh of Steilacoom, Wash. Cornerback Tuff Harris of Colstrip, who last played at Montana in 2006, was released by the Tennessee Titans and then signed to their practice squad. NFL teams had to trim their rosters to 53 players.
