The Chiefs have released TE Kevin Boss.  The 2012 free-agent signee sustained a concussion last September and never got back on the field.  He has a lengthy concussion history and will need to prove healthy to land a job elsewhere.

Chiefs TE Kevin Boss is done for the remainder of the season.  He sustained a concussion in Week 2 -- at least his 4th over the past 5 seasons -- and wasn't going to be medically-cleared this year.  Tony Moeaki is now locked-in as Kansas City's lead TE.  He's managed only 5 catches on 7 targets without Boss the past 2 weeks, though, and isn't a fantasy factor.

Chiefs TE Kevin Boss (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.  It should mean a few extra targets for TE Tony Moeaki, but he's still just a desperation fantasy option.

Chiefs TE Kevin Boss suffered a head injury in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Bills.  He made a leaping grab and was elbowed in the head as he fell to the turf.  It looked like he was briefly knocked out. Boss was able to make it to the sidelines with help but is unlikely to return today.

Chiefs HC Romeo Crennel called free-agent addition Kevin Boss a "blocking TE" and a guy who was signed as insurance for TE Tony Moeaki, who is recovering from last September's torn ACL.  “We were hoping Tony would come back full speed, but you just never know," Crennel said. "So if we could get a guy who could complement, a blocking tight end, and another guy who could catch if something would happen to Tony or Tony doesn’t make it back to where we hope he does, we felt that was pretty good for us.”  Moeaki is on track to be ready for the season-opener.  As long as he's on the field, Boss won't be a fantasy factor.  He could put a dent in T-Mo's production though.

The Chiefs have signed TE Kevin Boss to a 3-year, $9 million deal.  Boss had some semi-productive seasons with the Giants, going for 500+ yards and 5 TDs in 2009 and 2010.  He was completely invisible with the Raiders this past year though.  Boss is a rock-solid blocker and a capable pass-catcher, but he's more of an insurance policy for the injury-prone TE Tony Moeaki than a candidate for the starting job.  When healthy, Moeaki is much more talented.

The Raiders have released TE Kevin Boss.  They signed him to a 4-year, $16 million deal last offseason, but he never seemed to carve out a role in the passing game.  Boss' 28 catches, 368 yards, and 3 TDs last year were his lowest outputs since his rookie campaign back in 2007.  Still only 28 years old, Boss is now one of the top free-agent TEs available.

Raiders TE Kevin Boss suffered a concussion in the 2nd half of Sunday's game against the Chiefs.  He's dealt with multiple concussions in the past, so this is obviously a major concern.

Raiders TE Kevin Boss (knee) put in a full week of practice and will make his 2011 debut this Sunday against the Jets. Boss could eventually emerge as a quality TE2, but he shouldn’t be in fantasy lineups this week.

Raiders TE Kevin Boss (knee) returned to practice on Wednesday.  He's been out for the past 3-and-a-half weeks but is looking good for Sunday's game against the Bills.  We'll be monitoring Boss, but he's not a recommended fantasy option until we see what kind of role he'll have in Oakland's passing game.

Raiders HC Hue Jackson admits that there's a chance that TE Kevin Boss (knee) won't be ready for Week 1.  He's been out since August 20th with a sprained knee and has yet to begin practicing.  Regardless of his status for the opener, you should be able to do better than Boss at your starting TE spot.

Raiders TE Kevin Boss, recovering from a sprained MCL, was able to jog off to the side of practice on Wednesday.  He's been out since August 20th but is expecting to be ready for the season opener.  But after missing a good chunk of training camp and preseason with his new team, Boss is a good bet to get off to a slow start this season.  He's just a low-end TE2.

Raiders TE Kevin Boss suffered a sprained knee in the team's preseason game on Saturday.  HC Hue Jackson called him "week to week."  It sounds like he may be in jeopardy of missing the season opener.  Boss was just a low-end TE2 to begin with, and this news makes him even less attractive.

The Raiders have signed TE Kevin Boss to a 4-year, $16 million deal.  He'll replace the departed Zach Miller.  It's a definite downgrade, but Boss is a under-rated TE who's capable in the run-blocking and pass-catching departments.  And from a fantasy perspective, it's actually a slight upgrade for Boss.  While he's moving to a lesser offense with a lesser QB, he'll see a lot more targets in Oakland than he did in New York.  Meanwhile, the Giants are left with Travis Beckum and Ben Patrick at TE.  They'll likely split snaps, and neither guy figures to be a fantasy option.

Giants TE Kevin Boss is running full speed in workouts with his teammates this week.  It sounds like he's fully recovered from the arthroscopic hip surgery he underwent earlier this offseason.  Boss could be an unrestricted free-agent depending on the new CBA rules, but he's expected to return as New York's starting TE in 2011.

Giants TE Kevin Boss is almost fully recovered from offseason hip surgery.  "I'm still not cleared to go 100% yet, but I’m out there doing what I can," Boss said. "I'm just a couple weeks away from being able to go full speed."  Boss was able to work out with his teammates on Tuesday and should be a full-go for training camp.
