According to several reporters who cover the team (Aaron Wilson, Jeff Zrebiec, Luke Jones), Ravens wide receiver Anquan Boldin underwent surgery on Wednesday for a torn meniscus in his knee, and will miss the team’s final two games. He is expected back for the playoffs.

With Boldin out, Lee Evans and Torrey Smith become the team’s starting wide receivers. Tight ends Ed Dickson and Dennis Pitta will be counted on even more than they have been to run the short-to-intermediate routes with Boldin sidelined.

After leading the NFL in receptions (26) and yards (405) from weeks 6-9, Boldin has seen his production drop dramatically. He has only 16 receptions for 260 yards and one touchdown over the past six games.

Still, the veteran WR is a key cog in the Ravens’ attack. I think they’ll be able to get along with Evans, Smith, and the young tight ends over the next few weeks, but a healthy Boldin will be crucial for the Ravens to accomplish what they’d like to in the postseason.
