2011 NFL Pro Bowl Replacements Named As Steelers, Packers Head To Super Bowl XLV

Following the AFC and NFC Championships in the NFL this weekend, there have been a boatload of players that have pulled out of the 2011 Pro Bowl because they're going to the Super Bowl (looking at you Steelers, Packers) or because of injury, whether they're really hurt or not.

We've been tracking the replacements all day but here's the full list. There are 10 Pro Bowlers from the Steelers and Packers that will not play in the 2011 Pro Bowl and three more from the Bears and Jets pulled out from the game after Sunday's AFC and NFC Championship games.

The Bears, who lost to the Packers on Sunday, have had a couple of players pull out of the 2011 Pro Bowl including LBs Lance Briggs and Brian Urlacher. Those two will be replaced by Panthers LB Jon Beason and Redskins LB London Fletcher. 

The Jets, who lost to the Steelers on Sunday, saw C Nick Mangold pull out as well.

For the Packers, Redskins LB Brian Orakpo will replace LB Clay Matthews, Vikings CB Antoine Winfield will replace CB Tramon Williams, Falcons CB Brent Grimes will replace CB Charles Woodson, Bucs OT Donald Penn will replace OT Chad Clifton, Saints S Roman Harper will replace S Nick Collins and Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald will replace WR Greg Jennings.
