Wes Welker, Matt Light Added to Pro Bowl

Wes Welker and Matt Light have been selected to the Pro Bowl, giving the Patriots eight players overall in the NFL’s version of the All-Star Game. The new additions join rookie Devin McCourty, Jerod Mayo, Vince Wilfork, Logan Mankins, Tom Brady, and Brandon Meriweather on the AFC roster.¬†Of course, if the Patriots make it to the Super Bowl, all eight players would not play in the Pro Bowl, which occurs a week before the big game.

Welker has 86 catches for 848 yards this season, which began just eight months after he tore up his knee in Week 17 of the 2009 season against the Houston Texans. Welker replaces a Texan, WR Andre Johnson, who will undergo arthroscopic surgery.

Light is replacing Miami tackle Jake Long, who suffered from shoulder problems for most of the season. It’s Light’s third Pro Bowl selection overall.
