In the New York Giants' season opener against the Carolina Panthers, their starting tight end Kevin Boss suffered a concussion and is now questionable for next Sundays game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Boss also suffered a concussion last season, which is why the Giants are so concerned, taking serious precautions.  His first concussion was last year on Thanksgiving night in Denver, and was cleared to play by the following Wednesday.  But being that this is his second concussion, there is an unknown timetable for his return. 

Other than Boss, the only other Giants players who have played tight end are Travis Beckum and tackle William Beatty.  But unfortunately, Beatty will undergo surgery to repair a fractured bone in his right foot, sidelining him for an undetermined amount of time.  

With help needed at tight end, the Giants signed Bear Pascoe.  Pascoe was drafted in the sixth round last year by the San Francisco 49ers.  The Giants than signed Pascoe shortly after the 49ers cut him and has been on the practice squad ever since, while also recording one reception for nine yards, seeing action in four games.

The 6'5" 251 pound "Bear" should be a valuable add to the Giants, being very similar to Kevin Boss.  The twenty-four year old will be tested quickly, facing an extremely talented Indianapolis Colts team this Sunday at 8:20 PM EST on NBC.
