Knee surgery sidelines Ravens' Boldin until playoffs

If the Baltimore Ravens are to clinch the AFC North, they will have to do it without wide receiver Anquan Boldin.

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh announced that Boldin is expected to miss the final two weeks of the regular season after undergoing surgery Thursday to repair a slight tear in his meniscus.

Harbaugh said Boldin should be able to return for the playoffs.

Boldin leads the 10-4 Ravens with 887 receiving yards on 57 catches this season.

Baltimore is tied with Pittsburgh for first place in the division. The Ravens, though, own the tie-breaker after beating the Steelers twice this season.
