The Chiefs have placed TE Kevin Boss on the injured-reserve list, ending his 2012 season because of the concussion he suffered on September 16 in Buffalo.
“The doctors informed us they were not going to clear Kevin to play football the rest of this year,” head coach Romeo Crennel, said Wednesday morning. “Kevin was disappointed. We are disappointed because we felt he was a good addition to the team. We thought he would be able to help us. He wants to play football, but with his situation he’s not going to be able to play this year.”
In his short time as part of the Chiefs offense, Boss caught 3 passes for 65 yards, including a 29-yard catch against Buffalo and a 22-yard touchdown play against Atlanta.
To fill Boss’ roster spot, the Chiefs signed LB Bryan Kehl. In four NFL seasons, he played in 59 games with 5 starts, contributing 83 total tackles with an interception and 2 fumble recoveries.
The 6-2, 234-pound Utah native last played for the Washington Redskins, where he spent the pre-season and was released on August 31st. Before that he played for the St. Louis Rams for two seasons. Kehl came into the league as a 4th-round selection of the New York Giants in the 2008 NFL Draft. He was the 123rd selection.
Kehl played his college ball at Brigham Young.
