Anquan Boldin To Miss Saturday's Game Against Browns, Rest Of Regular Season With Knee Surgery

The Cleveland Browns are going to catch a bit of a break on Saturday when they take on the AFC North rival Baltimore Ravens. It looks like the Baltimore offense will be without one of its play-makers as wide receiver Anquan Boldin is set to miss the final two weeks of the regular season. The Ravens announced on Thursday that Boldin was going to have surgery on his knee to deal with torn cartilage, a meniscus injury.

He's getting his surgery done with hopes of returning for the playoffs (it's being done by Dr. James Andrews), but for the Browns, it means an increased chance to pick up a morale-oriented win against one of the better teams in the AFC and division rivals. Cleveland already boasts a strong pass defense, so without Boldin, their chances of beating the Ravens significantly increase.

Boldin injured his knee earlier in the week during some form of team practice. The team doesn't expect him to be 100% healthy if they have to play in the first round of the playoffs, but they expect him back nonetheless. In his place, the Browns will have to deal with Lee Evans, who is expected to start with Boldin sidelined.
