Morris, 26, will be making his second Pro Bowl appearance in three seasons. The former Florida Atlantic star rushed for a career-low 1,074 yards and eight touchdowns in 2014 but was nonetheless one of a few bright spots in the Washington offense. He is one of 17 players since the AFL-NFL merger to rush for at least 1,000 yards in each of his first three seasons, per Pro Football Reference.
McCoy, 26, was selected to his third Pro Bowl but was forced to pull out last week due to a lingering knee injury. The Eagles star rushed for 1,319 yards and five touchdowns, with his numbers dropping across the board from a career-best 2013. He was injured in the Eagles' season-ending win over the New York Giants.
Morris is one of an ever-growing list of replacement players making the trip to Glendale. Fifteen players have been forced out of the NFL's annual All-Star festivity due to injury or participation in the Super Bowl. Hall of Famers Cris Carter and Michael Irvin will serve as captains for this year's game and are scheduled to draft their rosters later this week.
Left tackle Trent Williams is Washington's only other Pro Bowl participant. Morris is the first Washington running back to be selected to consecutive Pro Bowls since Stephen Davis in 1999-2000.
