Vikings rookie Kalil added to Pro Bowl
By ESPN.com staff
Minnesota rookie offensive tackle Matt Kalil is headed to his first Pro Bowl, the Vikings announced Friday.
The move came because Washington Redskins tackle Trent Williams will be unable to play in Sunday's all-star game in Hawaii after suffering injuries in a night-club altercation early Friday morning in Honolulu. Williams was not arrested and is not under investigation in the incident, police said.
Kalil, 23, was the fourth overall pick in the 2012 draft and is the seventh Viking selected to this year's Pro Bowl. He was part of an offensive line that paved the way for Adrian Peterson, who ran for the second-highest single-season total in NFL history.
