Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Anquan Boldin will have surgery today to repair a meniscus tear in his knee, an injury that will keep him out the team’s final two remaining regular season games against the Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals, Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun writes.
Boldin, 31, is second on the Ravens with 57 catches and first with 887 receiving yards. The injury occurred Tuesday after the team’s walk-through practice. His surgery will be performed by the renowned orthopedist Dr. James Andrews.
Boldin, known for his toughness, hasn’t missed a game since the 2005 season. As for a replacement, veteran Lee Evans will step in and fill the void left by Boldin.
