Description: Kansas City tight end Kevin Boss has been placed on injured reserve due to a concussion.
Insight: He'll miss the remainder of the 2012 season. With Boss gone for the year, Tony Moeaki will take over as the team's starting tight end. Last week Moeaki came down with three catches for 18 yards.

Description: Chiefs tight end Kevin Boss (head) has been ruled out for Week 3 against New Orleans.
Insight: Boss took a blow to the head after making a reception against the Bills last week. Tony Moeaki will be the team's primary tight end Sunday.

Description: Chiefs tight end Kevin Boss left Sunday's game after taking a blow to the head on a reception.
Insight: Boss caught a touchdown last week and had a 29-yard reception Sunday but he received an elbow to the head from a Chiefs defender and is unlikely to return.

Description: Kevin Boss has signed a three-year, $9-million contract to play with the Chiefs.
Insight: Boss was not very productive last season (28 catches, 368 yards) and Matt Cassel isn't known for throwing to his tight ends so Boss's fantasy value in 2012 should be pretty minimal.

Description: Giants TE Kevin Boss had successful surgery Wednesday on his injured hip. SOURCE: ESPN.COM
Insight: Boss had a strange season, considering he didn't start posting solid fantasy stats until Hakeem Nicks and Steve Smith suffered injury. In this offense, Boss is still considered a fantasy threat, but we need to monitor the Giants closely in the off-season.

Description: Boss had four catches for 23 yards and a touchdown against the Vikings on Monday night.
Insight: Boss's damage came early in the game. He is not a particularly strong fantasy option, but does get a fairly favorable matchup against the Eagles in Week 15. (RapidDraft.com)

Description: Boss had three receptions for 74 yards and a touchdown against Jacksonville on Sunday.

Description: Giants TE Kevin Boss led the Giants with three receptions for 74 yards and a TD in Week 12s, 24-20, win over Jacksonville.
Insight: Everything happened in the second half, including his 32-yard TD reception that put the Giants ahead to stay. With Smith and Nicks hurt, he should be considered an every-week starter at TE till further notice.
