T.J. Ward replaces Troy Polamalu on Pro Bowl roster


A sixth Browns representative is headed to the Pro Bowl.

Strong safety T.J. Ward has been added to the Pro Bowl roster, the Browns announced Monday night.

Ward takes the place of Steelers strong safety Troy Polamalu, who is missing the game because of injury, the Browns said.

This is Ward’s first trip to the Pro Bowl. The fourth-year Oregon product notched 112 tackles, defended six passes and intercepted two passes in 16 starts for Cleveland in 2013.

Tight end Jordan Cameron, wide receiver Josh Gordon, cornerback Joe Haden, center Alex Mack and left tackle Joe Thomas are slated to be the Browns’ other Pro Bowl attendees.
