Boss will got through the rigors of the new NFL testing for concussions and will have to pass a battery of evaluations spanning a minimum of five days before he is able to be cleared for activity.

The fourth-year pro took a blow to the head on a pass intended for him early in the first quarter, was carted off the field and did not return. Last season, Boss had 42 catches for 567 yards and five touchdowns.

Coughlin also said second-year offensive lineman William Beatty has a fractured foot and will undergo surgery and that linebacker Chase Blackburn has a sprained knee.
