Titans RB Johnson out of the Pro Bowl


Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky

Titans rookie running back Chris Johnson has withdrawn from the Pro Bowl with an ankle injury, Jim Wyatt is reporting.

We at the AFC South blog believe Buffalo's Marshawn Lynch is next in line, but the league encourages teams not to reveal the order of succession because it thinks somehow knowing it in advance negatively affects its credibility.

Yeah, that's the problem with the Pro Bowl. Don't get me started, I've covered that before here.

Houston's Steve Slaton, I am pretty sure, is next in line after Lynch.

Update: Marshawn Lynch has been invited to the Pro Bowl.
