Tackle Ryan Clady has withdrawn from the 2013 Pro Bowl due to injury, it was announced on Tuesday.
He will be replaced by Bengals tackle Andrew Whitworth.
Denver could still have five Pro Bowl players this year, however, as wide receiver Demaryius Thomas is next in line for a berth at wideout. Should another receiver withdraw due to injury, Thomas would earn his first career selection. If New England defeats Baltimore, Thomas would also earn his first trip to the league’s All Star game since Wes Welker would be headed to the Super Bowl and would be unable to play in the Pro Bowl.
Denver’s other Pro Bowlers include quarterback Peyton Manning, linebacker Von Miller, cornerback Champ Bailey and defensive end Elvis Dumervil.
