Report: Ravens' Dixon out for season after undergoing knee surgery

Baltimore Ravens running back Kenneth Dixon will miss the entire 2017 season after undergoing surgery to repair a tear in his meniscus, a source told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Dixon's recovery will take four-to-five months, but having the meniscus repaired, not trimmed, means the knee will be in better shape in the long term, adds Rapoport.

The 23-year-old's rookie season was a disappointment, as he finished the year with just 382 rushing yards.

A four-game PED suspension meant Dixon's sophomore season was also off to a rocky start, but the expectation was that he'd push Terrance West hard for the starting job upon his return.

West and Danny Woodhead are now the only two proven options in the Ravens' backfield, so Baltimore may look to the free-agent market for reinforcements.
