Chiefs TE Boss to be re-evaluated for head injury

Chiefs tight end Kevin Boss will be re-evaluated after being

knocked woozy with a blow to the head in Kansas City’s 35-17 loss

to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

Coach Romeo Crennel provided the update, but didn’t have any

further details on Boss’ injury following the game. Crennel added

that cornerback Javier Arenas also hurt his neck.

Boss was hurt after making a 29-yard catch over the middle in

the second quarter. Stumbling backward, Boss was falling down when

Buffalo safety Da’Norris Searcy’s forearm hit the back of Boss’

head. The tight end’s head then hit the ground hard.

Boss stayed down for a few minutes before walking off the field

under his own power. He sat on the bench for a few minutes, and was

then escorted to the locker room before half time.

Searcy was penalized for unnecessary roughness for the hit.

The Chiefs are off to an 0-2 start for the sixth time in seven

seasons, and next play at New Orleans next weekend.

Bills coach Chan Gailey had no significant injuries to report

following the game.

He said defensive tackle Marcell Dareus continued playing

despite hurting his shoulder. Safety George Wilson returned to play

in the second half after sustaining a blow to the head while trying

to tackle Boss in the second quarter.
