INDIANAPOLIS – Thanks to the Pro Bowl alternates, the Colts will not be shut out of this year’s All-Star game.
An injury to Cincinnati’s A.J. Green means T.Y. Hilton is heading to the Pro Bowl for a 4th straight year.
Hilton finished 2017 with 57 catches for 966 yards and 4 touchdowns.
But after leading the league in receiving this past year, Hilton’s numbers severely diminished, with the quarterback situation certainly a major factor in that.
-18th in receiving yards (966)
-52nd in receptions (57)
-51st in touchdowns (4)
With Hilton now heading for the Pro Bowl, TE-Jack Doyle could be joining him in Orlando with possible questions about Kansas City’s Travis Kelce (health) and New England’s Rob Gronkowski (could be Super Bowl bound).
Back in December, the Colts did not have any Pro Bowlers originally named to the AFC Team.
With alternates included, the Colts have had at least 2 Pro Bowlers in every game since 1998.
This year’s Pro Bowl will take place on Sunday, January 28 at Camping World Stadium in Orlando.
