Steelers Ryan Clark Named To AFC Pro Bowl Team
Pittsburgh Steelers free safety Ryan Clark has been added to the AFC Pro Bowl roster in place of Baltimore Ravens injured safety Ed Reed. This will be the first trip for Clark to the NFL’s annual all-star game. It was announced just a few days ago that linebacker James Harrison was added to the Pro Bowl as he will replace Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs. At least three Steelers players have made the Pro Bowl every season dating back to 2001. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, wide receiver Mike Wallace, center Maurkice Pouncey, safety Troy Polamalu and kick returner Antonio Brown were voted in to this year’s game, but Pouncey and Polamalu had to bow out with injuries. Roethlisberger will reportedly now start for the AFC with New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady not playing. The Pro Bowl will be played this upcoming Sunday, January 29, at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii and televised on NBC at 7 p.m. Eastern.
