Vikings LB E.J. Henderson's Pro Bowl Absence Explained

Minnesota Vikings middle linebacker E.J. Henderson was a late addition to the 2011 Pro Bowl roster last week.

Henderson got the nod when New Orleans Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma backed out for personal reasons. Despite the announcement that he had backed out, Vilma ended up with a pair of tackles in last night's highly-viewed All-Star game, while Henderson did not suit up.

Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star Tribune received an explanation from the NFL, and apparently Vilma changed his mind about backing out of the game.

Despite not playing in the game, Henderson will receive a $45,000 winner's share for flying all the way to Hawaii on such short notice.
