Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan will miss the 2013 Pro
Bowl due to an injury to his left (non-throwing) shoulder, according to Pat Yasinskas of ESPN, and he’ll be replaced by Seattle Seahawks rookie Russell
Ryan, who initially was selected to the Pro Bowl, won’t be
going to Hawaii due to a left shoulder (non-throwing side) injury.
Ryan sustained his injury during the second half of last Sunday’s
loss to the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship game. The injury
shouldn’t require surgery but instead a minimal recovery period, and he’s expected
to be able to take part in the Falcons’ full offseason program.
Wilson helped lead the Seahawks to the NFC Divisional round
where they ultimately lost a hard-fought matchup against Ryan and the Falcons.
On the season, the rookie completed 64.1% of his passes for 3,118 yards with 26
touchdowns to 10 interceptions. He also ran for 489 yards and four touchdowns.
