INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck has been chosen to play in the Pro Bowl this weekend, replacing Seattle Seahawks signal-caller Russell Wilson.
It is the second consecutive selection to the NFL’s All-Star game for Luck, who will join teammates Robert Mathis and Matt Overton in Sunday’s game in Honolulu. Wilson will be playing in the Super Bowl a week later.
This season, Luck completed 343 of 570 passes (60.2 percent) for 3,822 yards and 23 touchdowns with nine interceptions for an 87.0 passer rating. In two postseason games, Luck threw for 774 yards and six touchdowns with seven interceptions. In a wild-card win over the Kansas City Chiefs, he led the Colts to the second-largest comeback in NFL postseason history after trailing by 28 points in the second half.
This year’s Pro Bowl will be the first to utilize a “fantasy draft” format rather than the traditional system of pitting the AFC against the NFC.
