Luck becomes third Colts rep in Pro Bowl

ANDERSON — Richard Sherman's tip drill success Sunday night did more than send the Seattle Seahawks to Super Bowl XLVIII and serve as the ignition point for one of the most memorable postgame interviews in recent history.

It also sent Sherman's former Stanford teammate, Andrew Luck, to his second straight Pro Bowl.

The second-year Indianapolis Colts quarterback will replace Seattle's Russell Wilson for Sunday's NFL all-star game in Hawaii. Luck threw for 3,822 yards with 23 touchdowns and nine interceptions and led the Colts (12-6) to the AFC's divisional playoff round this season.

He will join New Orleans' Drew Brees, New England's Tom Brady, Carolina's Cam Newton, San Diego's Philip Rivers and Philadelphia's Nick Foles as the Pro Bowl quarterbacks in a game that will be played without conference affiliation for the first time.

Players will be drafted on to teams led by honorary captains Deion Sanders and Jerry Rice during a two-day event beginning Tuesday. Guards, centers, fullbacks, interior defensive linemen, punters and special-teamers will be selected on the draft's first day. The remaining players will be drafted during a live broadcast Wednesday at 8 p.m. on NFL Network.

Among other changes to this year's game: There will be no kickoffs. A coin toss will determine who gets the ball first and the offense will begin at its own 25-yard line. There will be a two-minute warning during each quarter, and the ball will change hands at the end of the first three periods.

Luck is the third Indianapolis player to be included in the game. Outside linebacker Robert Mathis was selected in initial voting by fans, coaches and players, and long snapper Matt Overton was added by the Carolina Panthers coaching staff.

Ron Rivera and his assistants will lead Rice's Pro Bowl team, and Colts head coach Chuck Pagano and his staff will handle Sanders' roster.
