2012 Pro Bowl Rosters: Roddy White Replaces Calvin Johnson

The Atlanta Falcons will get a second player on the NFC Pro Bowl roster as Roddy White will replace Calvin Johnson due to injury.

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White was added to the NFC Pro Bowl roster on Wednesday, as the former UAB Blazer will replace Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson, who will be unavailable to play due to a sore Achilles' injury.

White finished his 2011 campaign with 100 receptions and 1,296 yards to go along with eight touchdowns. He also finished second in the NFL in receptions, and led the NFC in receptions for the second straight season. In his final game of the season, the receiver had 5 catches for 52 yards in the Falcons 24-2 defeat by the New York Giants in the Wild Card round of the NFC playoffs.

White will join tight end Tony Gonzalez as the only Falcon members on the NFC Pro Bowl roster. The 2012 Pro Bowl will be played on Sunday, January 29th in Honolulu, Hawaii.
