Anquan Boldin having meniscus surgery

OWINGS MILLS -- Baltimore Ravens veteran wide receiver Anquan Boldin is undergoing surgery today to repair a slightly torn meniscus, according to coach John Harbaugh. Harbaugh said that Boldin should be out the final two weeks of the regular season and able to return in time for the playoffs. Lee Evans will start in his place opposite rookie Torrey Smith

"Anquan Boldin is getting surgery this afternoon," Harbaugh said. "He's got a slight tear in his meniscus. It flapped up on him, I think it was Tuesday night after the walkthrough. He's going to have to get it repaired.

"It's a two-week thing. It's two weeks and he'll be back for the playoffs, whatever round we happen to play in. It will be a little bit tighter if we have to play in the first round."

Meanwhile, Harbaugh announced that newly-acquired kicker Shayne Graham will handle the kicking duties Saturday against the Cleveland Browns with Pro Bowl kicker Billy Cundiff being rested this week due to his left calf injury.

"We anticipate Shayne being the kicker this week," Harbaugh said. "Billy's dealing with his calf and Shayne's been practicing. Even if Billy was ready to go,and I still think he's nursing that thing back and he's not 100 percent, Shayne got the week of practice in so we'll go with Shayne."
