2013 Pro Bowl roster: Only two Patriots headed to Hawaii

Jared Wickerham

Seven Patriots were selected to the Pro Bowl roster, but only two will be made the trip to Honolulu.

One week after a tough loss to the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Championship, the desire of Patriots players to go play in the Pro Bowl may not be at its highest. Of the seven Patriots selected, only two will be playing in the Pro Bowl on Jan. 27 in Honolulu.

The five selected Patriots not headed to the Pro Bowl have all withdrawn due to injury. Quarterback Tom Brady, tight end Rob Gronkowski, guard Logan Mankins, wide receiver Wes Welker, and defensive tackle Vince Wilfork all have decided not to attend. Gronkowski withdrew after breaking his forearm in the Divisional round win over the Texans; the other four pulled out following the Patriots AFC Championship loss with various injuries. The two Patriots who remain on the roster are linebacker Jerod Mayo and special-teamer Matthew Slater.

Brady was replaced by Colts rookie Andrew Luck, who will be the third quarterback on the AFC squad behind starter Peyton Manning and Matt Schaub. Schaub is one of an NFL-leading nine Houston Texans that will be represented at the Pro Bowl. Full rosters for both teams can be found at NFL.com
