Center Chris Myers and defensive end Antonio Smith have been added to the AFC Pro Bowl roster.
Myers replaces Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey, who will miss the game with an ankle injury. Smith replaces Patriots defensive end Mark Anderson, who was placed on injured reserve with a thigh injury.
A sixth-round pick out of Miami by the Denver Broncos in 2005, Myers became a full-time starter in 2007 and was traded to the Texans in 2008. Myers has started 80 consecutive games and will be going to his first Pro Bowl. Myers is also the first offensive lineman to make the Pro Bowl in Texans’ history.
Smith was a 2004 fifth-round pick out of Oklahoma State by the Arizona Cardinals. Signed as a free agent in 2009, Smith had a career-high 6.5 quarterback sacks in 2011 and will also be going to his first Pro Bowl.
