Bears offensive tackle Kyle Long has been named to his third Pro Bowl in as many seasons.

Long was added Thursday as an injury replacement for Eagles tackle Jason Peters.

A first round pick in 2013, Long started all 16 games at right tackle in 2015. Long becomes the first Bears player since Brian Urlacher (2000-02) to be named to the Pro Bowl in each of his first three seasons and the first Bears offensive lineman to be selected to the Pro Bowl in his first three seasons.
