Arian Foster’s former backup in Houston is replacing him on the Pro Bowl roster.

Ravens tailback Justin Forsett is headed to the NFL’s all-star game in place of Foster, who has an injury. The announcement was made by the Ravens on Tuesday.

The 29-year-old Forsett had a breakout season for Baltimore in 2014, rushing for 1,266 yards and eight TDs on 235 carries (all career-highs). This will be his first Pro Bowl appearance.

Forsett played for Houston in 2012, rushing for 374 yards on 63 attempts.

The Pro Bowl will be held on Sunday, January 25 at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

  1. Well deserved. Goes to show how hard work and determination make all the difference in the world. A guy like Forsett who has been on 4 teams and was cut by the lowly Jags showed enough to impress Harbs and Kubiak and 16 regular season games later he’s top 5 in rushing yards and top dog in ypc. Congrats JF!

  2. Pro Bowl is the worst event of theach 4 major sports.

    Have a sponsor break out $25 million in cash on the 50 yard the winner gets the cash in addition to their Normal salary.

    I would watch that game.

  3. Kudos to him. He ate my Patriots up Sat. Guys bounced around, 5 teams in 7 years. Thought he’d be done after last year. Gotta have some grit to never give up on your dream. #Respect

  4. 95 people make the pro bowl at each position. If you are a gm for a team and put pro bowl bonuses in their contracts, it is like giving away free money because tons of non deserving people make the pro bowl. For the record I thought forsett should have made it over foster anyway. Not bashing him. Just using this article as a forum to vent the irrelevance of being called a pro bowler in today’s nfl.

  5. When he was in Houston, you didn’t worry the offense was going to lose a step. Very impressive back, and glad he found his place in Baltimore. And Hawaii.
