The list of Vikings headed to the Pro Bowl continues to grow.
Now quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and outside linebacker Anthony Barr have been selected as injury replacements for this weekend’s Pro Bowl. They will join running back Adrian Peterson, defensive end Everson Griffen and safety Harrison Smith. Smith was also added today.
The five Pro Bowl representatives this season is the most the Vikings have had since 2012, when they sent seven players to Hawaii.
Bridgewater, who replaces injured Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer, threw for 3,231 yards and 14 touchdowns during the 2015 season with nine interceptions. He also rushed for three touchdowns.
Barr, who will fill in for Patriots outside linebacker Jamie Collins, totaled 68 tackles, 3.5 sacks, three forced fumbles and an interception.
The Pro Bowl is this Sunday at 6 p.m. CT at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu.
