Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is out of surgery after having the torn ACL and MCL in his left knee repaired, his agent said Tuesday night.

The surgery went as planned, Joe Linta said.

Renowned orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews performed the surgery Tuesday in Pensacola, Fla. Flacco will stay in Florida for a little while to begin the rehabilitation process.

Flacco tore the ACL and MCL in his left knee late in a 16-13 victory over the St.  Louis Rams on Nov. 22. He was placed on injured reserve on Nov. 24 and will miss the final six games of the season, ending his streak of 137 consecutive starts, second-most in NFL history by a quarterback to begin a career.

Matt Schaub has started the past two games in his place.

The Ravens have said that they are hopeful Flacco will be ready for training camp, though that will depend on how he responds to rehab.
