Kansas City Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel expressed his displeasure after Wednesday's practice regarding the news that the team will be without tight end Kevin Boss (concussion) for the remainder of 2012.

Here is what Crennel specifically had to say on the matter:

"Kevin was disappointed, we're disappointed because we thought he was a good addition to the team, we felt like he would be able to help us, and he enjoys playing football, wants to play football ... He'll take time to try to get back and get himself together and then in the mean time we'll keep treating and working with him and kind of go from there."

The Chiefs brought Boss on board from the Oakland Raiders with a three-year, $9 million dollar contract this past offseason. He was expected to be paired with Tony Moeaki to form a formidable tight end duo and was performing relatively well with three receptions for 65 yards and a touchdown before injury.

Boss suffered the concussion during a Week 2 matchup against the Buffalo Bills when S D'Norris Searcy speared Boss' helmet with his elbow following his 29-yard reception. The Chiefs are expected to continue using TE Steve Maneri in Boss' place.
