Indianapolis Colts receiver Anthony Gonzalez underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee on Thursday, and appears unlikely to return to the field anytime soon.

The surgery was conducted to clean up the inside of his knee, and to remove loose particles.

Indianapolis has been quiet about the exact details of Gonzalez's injury, never officially releasing whether or not the receiver's ligaments were torn or sprained, nor whether or not he ever had surgery following the injury.

Gonzalez was originally hoping for a return around Week Seven, but two weeks have come and gone, and Gonzalez still hasn't even hit the practice field.

This latest "clean-up" is a major setback, and there is no timetables for his return.

Fantasy Perspective: Gonzalez and the Colts have been dragging us around all season with false hope. Even if he does return, mini-Gonzo isn't guaranteed big numbers in an offense with so many weapons, so there isn't much use for holding onto him an longer.

He's likely at least another two to three weeks away from returning, that is, if the Colts aren't already preparing to put him on IR.
