Ravens running back Kenneth Dixon underwent knee surgery Tuesday that was expected to keep him out 6-8 weeks. Instead, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Dixon will miss the season.

Dixon needed his medial meniscus repaired, not trimmed, requiring a 4-5 month recovery time, according to Rapoport. It was Dixon’s third knee injury in the past 12 months.

Dixon was set to miss the first four games for violating the league’s performance enhancing drug policy.

The Ravens already agreed to terms with Bobby Rainey to take Dixon’s place in camp. Terrance West and Danny Woodhead are the team’s top running backs with Buck Allen and Lorenzo Taliaferro (who is seeing time at fullback as well) also in the mix.

  1. Does it seem like the Ravens have some bad Karma surrounding them? Could this have anything to do with how they’ve treated Dennis Pitta’s career?
    This man had a dislocated and fractured hip in 2013 training camp. An obviously potential career ending injury. Instead of giving the injury the respect and time that it deserved they actually rushed this guy back to finish up the season.

    What happened next you ask? It popped out the following season in week 2 as he ran across the field. Didn’t play again until 2016. Now this year during underwear football season (OTA’s) it popped out again. Oh well, there goes a career.
    Now they did give him an outsized contract after that 2013 season which was nice but not very bright. But since then they’ve cut the salary until this year cutting him loose after the final injury with no pay. Talk about not giving a damn about the people who work for you.
