Al Harris Headed to the Pro Bowl

Bleacher Report Senior Analyst IJanuary 20, 2009

Alshinard Harris is heading back to the Pro Bowl for the second straight year, thanks in part to an injury to Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Asante Samuel. Samuel will not be going to Hawai'i because of a neck injury, and Harris will be his injury replacement.

This puts the number of Packers to be in this year's Pro Bowl back to two, after Charles Woodson previously pulled out because of an "injury". Harris will join Nick Collins, who was voted in for the first time.

Also going to the Pro Bowl for the Pack could be receiver Greg Jennings.

Jennings is currently an alternate, but with both Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin set to play in the Super Bowl, it's possible one of them could decide to pull out of the annual celebration and promotion of Hawai'i as a vacation spot.
