Vikings defensive tackle Kevin Williams has been replaced on the NFC Pro Bowl roster by Arizona's Darnell Dockett.

Running back Adrian Peterson was the only Vikings player elected to the all-star game, but Williams was selected to play in the game for the sixth time in his eight-year career after Detroit rookie Ndamukong Suh had to drop out because of an injury. Williams' wife, Tasha, is expecting a baby.

Dockett, 29, was named to the Pro Bowl in 2007 and 2009 and had 52 tackles, five sacks and one forced fumble in 15 games this season. The Pro Bowl will be played on Jan. 30 at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu.

Meanwhile, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced today that they have hired Pat Morris as their offensive line coach. Morris held the same job with the Vikings from 2006 through this season but was not retained by new coach Leslie Frazier.
