T.Y. Hilton replaces A.J. Green in Pro Bowl

There’s a change to the wide receiver group for the AFC Pro Bowl squad.

Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green was selected for the initial roster, but he has pulled out of the game due to an unspecified injury. Colts wideout T.Y. Hilton has been added to the team as a replacement.

Hilton had 57 catches for 966 yards and four touchdowns during the 2017 season, which are his lowest marks since his rookie season. Much of that can be attributed to playing without Andrew Luck for the entire year and his frustrations were also directed at the offensive line at one point early in the season.

With Hilton headed for Orlando on January 28, the Colts have now been represented at the Pro Bowl by at least one player every year since 1998.

    Neither should be there. JUJU Smith Schuster earned it. Which is another reason to not watch the Pro Bowl!

    AJ Green is so much better than Smith-Schuster. How does Smith-Schuster deserve it over Green or T.Y. Hilton?? Get over yourself. You want to talk about players who don’t belong, go look at Chris Boswell who is nowhere near as good as Justin Tucker (who’s the best kicker in the league). Alex Smith should have gotten in over Roethlisberger as well.

  2. All of the alternates will come from teams not playing this weekend. Any team that goes to the conference championships sends 0 players to the Pro bowl.

    A Brown is likely not going to the pro bowl. I hope he does because them Pitt is eliminated.

    Is there a reason to watch the Pro Bowl? I haven’t found one yet
