The Kansas City Chiefs added versatile tight end Kevin Boss to bolster the position in the offseason. Boss was supposed to share time with Tony Moeaki and give quarterback Matt Cassel another target in the passing game. Just four games into the 2012, Moeaki will now have to carry the load.
According to Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star, Boss has been placed on injured reserve with a concussion. Per the report, Boss was told by doctors that they would not clear him to play this season.
Thankfully for the Chiefs, Moeaki looks healthy after tearing his ACL over a year ago. Unfortunately, the Chiefs could have used a quality player like Boss to get back on track after a 1-3 start.
Concussions are a scary thing, and it makes sense to give Boss as long as he needs to fully recover in hopes he can return next year at full strength.
