Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle Kevin Williams has been added to the NFC Pro Bowl roster.
Williams replaces Detroit Lions rookie Ndamukong Suh, who will miss the game after he undergoes shoulder surgery next Monday.
Williams (6-5, 311) started all 16 games for the fifth straight season, totaling 39 tackles, one quarterback sack, and a career-high 10 passes defensed. This will be the fifth straight trip to the Pro Bowl for Williams, who has gone to six overall.
Suh was named one of the five finalists for NFL's Rookie of the Year.
