Seahawks QB Russell Wilson added to NFC Pro Bowl squad

Russell Wilson’s remarkable rookie season will end with a trip to Hawaii. Wilson will play in the Pro Bowl as an injury replacement for Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan, who suffered a shoulder injury in Sunday’s NFC Championship game.

Wilson was named a third alternate when Pro Bowl rosters were announced last month, but will play in the game because all three NFC quarterbacks (Aaron Rodgers, Robert Griffin III and Ryan) will miss the game because of injuries. Drew Brees and Eli Manning already had been added to the NFC squad as injury replacements.

Wilson, who tied Peyton Manning’s rookie record with 26 touchdown passes, will be the sixth Seahawk on the Pro Bowl roster, joining center Max Unger and left tackle Russell Okung, who were both named to the team as starters, as well as running back Marshawn Lynch, safety Earl Thomas and kick returner Leon Washington.
