Updated look at Pro Bowl participants

January, 24, 2011
We'll have the NFC North portion of the Associated Press All-Pro team a bit later on this very busy Monday. But for now, let's update the divisional lineup for Sunday's Pro Bowl in Honolulu.

Obviously, none of the six Green Bay Packers players named to the team will participate. Meanwhile, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports that Bears linebackers Lance Briggs and Brian Urlacher have withdrawn. Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle Kevin Williams has withdrawn because his wife is expecting a baby, and Vikings cornerback Antoine Winfield has been added.

So here is my NFC North reckoning as of Monday afternoon:

Chicago Bears
LB Lance Briggs +
LB Brian Urlacher +
DE Julius Peppers *
KR Devin Hester

Detroit Lions
WR Calvin Johnson *
DT Ndamukong Suh *+

Green Bay Packers
LT Chad Clifton +
FS Nick Collins *+
WR Greg Jennings +
LB Clay Matthews * +
CB Tramon Williams @ +
CB Charles Woodson * +

Minnesota Vikings
RB Adrian Peterson
DT Kevin Williams @+
CB Antoine Winfield @

* Starter
+ Won't play
@ Injury/Super Bowl replacement
