San Francisco's players will miss out on the Pro Bowl due to their upcoming appearance in the Super Bowl. Here's who will replace them in Hawaii.
Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh will replace 49ers defensive end Justin Smith on the NFC roster. Suh regained a bit of the form he had during his rookie year, compiling eight sacks for the Lions. Two Washington Redskins, linebacker London Fletcher and defensive end Ryan Kerrigan, will replace Patrick Willis and Aldon Smith. Arizona Cardinals linebacker Daryl Washington will replace the other 49ers linebacker on the Pro Bowl roster, NaVorro Bowman, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie running back Doug Martin will take the place of Frank Gore.
The Pro Bowl will be played in Hawaii on Sunday and can be seen nationally on NBC.
