Broncos Add 2 To Pro Bowl Roster [VIDEO]
Thomas, Beadles added to AFC Pro Bowl roster.
Denver Broncos head coach John Fox and his staff will have some more familiar faces at the Pro Bowl in Hawaii this weekend.
Zane Beadles and Demaryius Thomas have each been picked to the AFC squad. Thomas replaces Wes Welker and Beadles replaces Logan Mankins. The Patriots players withdrew Monday due to injuries.
Thomas and Beadles join teammates Peyton Manning, Von Miller, Elvis Dumervil and Champ Bailey in the game. Left tackle Ryan Clady was chosen to start but will sit out because of a shoulder injury.
Thomas had 1,434 yards receiving and 10 touchdowns.
Beadles played every snap on offense and allowed one sack.
Colts’ Andrew Luck added to AFC’s Pro Bowl roster. Andrew Luck and Peyton Manning will get a chance to be teammates after all — at Sunday’s Pro Bowl.
Luck earned his way to the game when New England’s Tom Brady pulled out with an undisclosed injury. Luck will be joined by teammates Reggie Wayne and Robert Mathis in Hawaii and Manning, the quarterback who preceded Luck in Indianapolis.
Luck was the No. 1 overall pick in April’s draft and set NFL rookie records for attempts, yards passing and 300-yard games. He fell just short of the league’s rookie marks for completions and touchdowns.
Luck also won 11 games, the most by an No. 1 pick in the modern draft and tied an NFL mark by leading seven game-winning drives in the fourth quarter. (AP)
