Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald seemed fine on Sunday night. But he’s injured, as far as the Pro Bowl is concerned.
The Colts have announced that receiver T.Y. Hilton will replace Fitzgerald, who won’t play in the Pro Bowl due to injury.
Whether injured or “injured,” it makes sense for Fitzgerald to skip it. The game is meaningless, presenting an opportunity to be injured when otherwise not injured.
It’s the second straight Pro Bowl appearance for Hilton, who joins safety Mike Adams and cornerback Vontae Davis as replacements for some of the many Pro Bowlers who have bailed in the past 24 hours.
