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.
