OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh says Baltimore rookie Terrence Cody has had surgery on his left his left knee and will be sidelined for two weeks.

The procedure, performed last week to repair a torn lateral meniscus, leaves the nose guard questionable for the Ravens' season opener against the New York Jets on Sept. 13.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh says there's a chance Cody could be back for the opener, but says "for the bigger guys, sometimes it takes a little longer."

Harbaugh says the good news is the Ravens "have a lot of depth on the defensive line right now."

Cody had said last week that he didn't think he would need surgery to address swelling in his knee. The 6-foot-4, 349-pounder from Alabama says that he doesn't have a history of knee issues.
