Luck to replace Brady in Pro Bowl

ANDERSON, Ind. — Add another line to Andrew Luck’s remarkable rookie resume. The Indianapolis Colts quarterback is going to the Pro Bowl.

Luck will replace New England’s Tom Brady, who pulled out of the NFL’s annual all-star game on Monday citing injury.

Luck completed 54.1 percent of his passes for a rookie-record 4,374 yards with 23 touchdowns and 18 interceptions during the regular season. He led Indianapolis to an 11-5 record and a surprise playoff berth then set another rookie record with 54 pass attempts against the Super Bowl-bound Baltimore Ravens in the wild-card round.

Luck’s 288 passing yards in the 24-9 loss were the second-highest total ever for a rookie in postseason play.

He joins Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson, Tampa Bay running back Doug Martin and Minnesota kicker Blair Walsh as rookies who will compete in the Pro Bowl.

Wilson and Martin were named as replacements to the NFC team. Walsh was voted into the game by fans, players and coaches.

Washington rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III also was voted on to the NFC team, but he will not participate because of a knee injury.

Luck joins former Indianapolis quarterback Peyton Manning, a leading candidate to win his fifth MVP award, on the AFC roster.

Outside linebacker Robert Mathis and wide receiver Reggie Wayne also will represent the Colts in Hawaii.

The game kicks off at 7 p.m. on Sunday at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu and will be broadcast on NBC.
