The Oakland Raiders signed tight end Kevin Boss away from the New York Giants to help fill the void caused by the loss of Zach Miller.

But a preseason knee injury sidelined Boss until now, when he finally makes his official debut as a Raider on Sunday against the New York Jets.

Boss, who practiced all week this week for Oakland, admits he is looking forward to his first game as a Raider in the famed Black Hole.

"I'm looking forward to experiencing it firsthand, for sure," Boss told "It's going to be a great atmosphere."
