Boller set for left shoulder surgery

A Ravens player will undergo shoulder surgery this week, but it won't be linebacker Ray Lewis.

The Ravens announced that quarterback Kyle Boller will have arthroscopic surgery today to clean up damaged tissue in his left (non-throwing) shoulder. Boller, who was named the Ravens' starter last month, is not expected to miss any minicamps.

Lewis, however, will have surgery on his thumb Wednesday, a team spokesman said.

There had been talk that the NFL's Defensive Player of the Year would need a minor operation on his right shoulder, which was stabilized by a harness for the final month of the season. But recent tests revealed that no surgery would be required.

In other injury news, defensive end Tony Weaver had surgery on the middle finger of his right hand Wednesday.
