The Chiefs will be without one of their tight ends for the remainder of the season.  Kansas City placed Kevin Boss on the Injured Reserve list and do not expect him to be cleared to play again this season.  Boss will miss the team's final 12 regular season games after missing the last two.

According to Dan Hanzus of NFL.com, Boss suffered a concussion in week two and has been battling concussion symptoms since.  Doctors told him they would not clear him to play again his season.  Boss has a history of concussions which likely played a role in the decision to shut him down for the rest of the season.

Boss played in the Chiefs' first two games this season and caught three passes for 63 yards in those games.  His 21.7 yards per reception this year have been the highest of his career, but the two game sample size is too small to draw conclusions from.  In his career, Boss has averaged 13.6 yards per reception.  He has 2,033 career receiving yards between his time with the New York Giants, the Oakland Raiders, and the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Chiefs were not expected to do much in the AFC West this season, and their start has reinforced that notion.  They are 1-3, and they will now be without one of their tight ends for which they were going to rely on heavily this season.

With the IR move, the Chiefs filled the roster spot by signing linebacker Bryan Kehl says Randy Covitz of the Kansas City Star.  Kehl formerly played for the St. Louis Rams.
