With the Pro Bowl set to take place the weekend before the Super Bowl this year, players from Super Bowl teams are ineligible to participate. A few lucky alternates got some good news on Sunday after the Green Bay Packers made the Super Bowl, opening up some extra roster slots. Three NFC players -- Roman Harper, Antoine Winfield and Larry Fitzgerald -- were added to the roster on Sunday following the NFC Championship.
Harper will be replacing Green Bay safety Nick Collins in Hawaii. It will be the second Pro Bowl he's been named to, though he was forced to skip the 2010 Pro Bowl after the New Orleans Saints made the Super Bowl.
Fitzgerald was honored for the fifth time after being named an alternate when the initial rosters were announced. The Arizona Cardinals wide receiver will be replacing Green Bay's Greg Jennings on the roster in Hawaii.
Winfield gets the nod for either Charles Woodsen or Tramon Williams. The 2011 Pro Bowl will be the third time he's made the trip to Hawaii, also participating in 2008 and 2009. Winfield was selected in 2010 but did not participate after suffering an injury.
The 2011 Pro Bowl kicks off on Sunday, Jan. 30 in Hawaii. For the latest on the rosters, stay tuned to our StoryStream.
