Signed to a three-year, $9 million deal early in free agency last year, Boss suffered a season-ending concussion in Week 2. He finished with just three catches.

Kevin Boss (head) has been ruled out for Week 3 against the Saints.
Boss was injured in Week 2 against the Bills after S Da'Norris Searcy laid a wicked forearm to the front of the Boss' helmet while he was making a 29-yard catch. Boss has five catches for 91 yards in the season's first two weeks. Tony Moeaki will handle tight end duties. He is not a fantasy option.

Chiefs agreed to terms with TE Kevin Boss on a three-year, $9 million contract.
After watching Bill Belichick and Josh McDaniels embrace the two-tight end attack, new Chiefs coordinator Brian Daboll, formerly a Patriots assistant, will install one of his own. Boss will be the inline tight end with Tony Moeaki (ACL surgery) ticketed for the more versatile "Joker" role. From a fantasy standpoint, Moeaki has the higher ceiling, though neither player is likely to exceed TE2 production.
