Kevin Boss left Sunday's Week 2 game against the Bills with an apparent head injury.
Boss caught a 29-yard pass deep down the middle and took an elbow to the head while falling to the ground from Bills safety Da'Norris Searcy. He walked off the field under his own power but looks questionable to return. Searcy was penalized on the play.

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.

Free agent TE Kevin Boss will visit the Chiefs on Thursday.
Not technically a free agent until 4PM ET Wednesday, Boss has reportedly drawn interest from "several teams." One year removed from back-to-back 500-yard campaigns, he won't last long in a thin tight end market.

Raiders released TE Kevin Boss.
It's a surprising move barely six months after the Raiders handed Boss a four-year, $16 million deal, but hardly unwarranted after he caught just 28 passes for 368 yards his first season in Oakland. New GM Reggie McKenzie appears committed to cutting away the waste of the final days of the Al Davis era. A natural landing spot for Boss would be his former Giants, who are in danger of being without both Jake Ballard and Travis Beckum next season as they recover from torn ACLs.

The Contra Costa Times' Steve Corkran expects TE Kevin Boss to be back with the Raiders in 2012.
Signed to a four-year, $16 million deal in August, Boss caught just 28 passes for 368 yards and three touchdowns this season, but will make only $2 million in 2012. With Carson Palmer having little history of featuring his tight ends, Boss won't be a good bounce-back candidate in fantasy leagues next season.

Kevin Boss caught three passes for 33 yards and a touchdown in the Raiders' Week 17 loss to the Chargers.
Boss finished his first season in Oakland with 28 catches for 368 yards and three scores. He was an asset as a blocker, as usual, but Hue Jackson doesn't use tight ends much in his passing game, and nor does Carson Palmer have a history of doing so. Boss will be low on the TE2 fantasy radar in 2012 leagues.

Kevin Boss caught three passes for 47 yards against the Lions in Week 15.
The king of garbage time was an afterthought for three quarters, catching two of his three passes in the final 40 seconds to set up a 65-yard field-goal attempt for Sebastian Janikowski. Boss is still not a reliable fantasy option versus the Chargers in Week 16.

Kevin Boss caught five passes for 43 yards and a touchdown against the Packers in Week 14.
Chalk it up to garbage time. Four of Boss' five receptions came after the Packers were up 31-0, and his fourth-quarter touchdown was the result of a disinterested defense. Don't bother picking up Boss for Week 15 against the Lions.
