Kevin Boss was trying to fight through the pain in his ankle. Not to prove his toughness, not because he was worried about surgery, but because he didn’t want to miss any time this spring.
Nearly month later, he’s glad he opted for surgery.
The Giants’ tight end said the other day he hasn’t experienced any discomfort since last month’s procedure to remove bone spurs and clean up other damage in his ankle. With six weeks to go before training camp, Boss says he’s ahead of schedule in his goal to be ready for the team’s first practices in Albany.
Although Boss is a decent receiving tight end, he is a low end #1 at best in larger leagues that require a TE.
