Gresham, Greenway named to Pro Bowl as replacements
(Sports Network) - Cincinnati Bengals tight end Jermaine Gresham and Minnesota Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway were both named to the Pro Bowl as injury replacements Thursday.
Gresham, who will replace Pittsburgh's Heath Miller for the AFC, recorded career highs of 64 receptions and 737 yards to go along with five touchdowns this season for the Bengals.
He will be making his second Pro Bowl appearance in his three-year career.
Greenway will fill in for the Cowboys' DeMarcus Ware on the NFC squad. The seven-year pro recorded 148 tackles, three sacks and an interception to earn his second consecutive Pro Bowl spot.
Miller tore the ACL in his right knee during the Steelers' 13-10 overtime loss to Cincinnati in Week 16, while Ware will miss the game with a shoulder injury he battled with throughout the season.
