Rookie quarterbacks Russell Wilson and Andrew Luck were added to the NFC and AFC Pro Bowl rosters on Monday.
The Seattle Seahawks’ Wilson joined the NFC roster after Atlanta’s Matt Ryan withdrew due to an injury. Wilson will be the sixth Seahawks player in the game. He threw for 3,118 yards and tied the NFL rookie record with 26 passing touchdowns in the regular season.
Ryan was injured in Sunday’s NFC championship game loss to San Francisco.
The Indianapolis Colts’ Luck got his spot in the game when New England’s Tom Brady pulled out with an undisclosed injury. Luck was the No. 1 overall pick in April’s draft and set NFL rookie records for attempts, yards passing and 300-yard games. He fell just short of the league’s rookie marks for completions and touchdowns.
