Kevin Boss Ruled Out Against Colts


Recommended Posts



Kevin Boss’ third concussion in less than two years will keep him out of Sunday’s game against the Colts, Giants coach Tom Coughlin announced today.


Boss suffered his latest concussion when he was hit in the back of the head by Panthers safety Sherrod Martin on the Giants’ first drive this past Sunday. The fourth-year tight end, who also suffered concussions late in the 2008 season and in the Thanksgiving loss to the Broncos last year, said the blow "felt like somebody hit me with a bat."


The Giants signed tight end Bear Pascoe from their practice squad on Tuesday. He’ll likely serve as the starter on Sunday in Indianapolis, with Travis Beckum playing his usual role of the “move” tight end and slot receiver.


Complicating matters for the Giants is offensive tackle William Beatty’s undergoing surgery Thursday to repair a broken bone in his foot. Beatty is expected to miss about two months of action.

Elsewhere on the injury report, DE Osi Umenyiora (knee) and WR Hakeem Nicks (ankle) will sit out today but are expected back Thursday. Neither injury appears to be serious.


Coughlin said Nicks suffered the injury Sunday while catching three touchdowns but didn’t leave the game. Umenyiora’s injury is the “same issue” with which he’s been dealing, according to Coughlin. That means it’s related to his 2008 surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his knee.


CB Aaron Ross (foot) is expected to practice fully today. Again, he’s on target to return on Sunday.


LB Chase Blackburn (knee) is “day-to-day” and will not practice today.
