Buffalo Bills guard Richie Incognito appears headed to Hawaii this week for his second career Pro Bowl appearance as a replacement for Arizona Cardinals guard Mike Iupati.

Teammate Eric Wood, who was named a Pro Bowl replacement for Carolina Panthers center Ryan Kalil earlier Monday, tweeted congratulations to Incognito: "Congrats @68INCOGNITO!! You deserve it and it's going to be a heck of a week!"

Incognito, who was selected last month as an alternate to the Pro Bowl, was graded by Pro Football Focus as the NFL's second-best guard this season, behind Baltimore's Marshal Yanda. The Bills averaged 6.58 yards per carry on runs toward their left guard, Incognito, this season, the best by any team since ESPN Stats & Information began tracking that stat in 2006.

Incognito earned his first Pro Bowl nod in 2012, before his career was derailed by a bullying scandal in 2013. The Miami Dolphins suspended Incognito for the final eight games of that season, and he was released by the team after the NFL had attorney Ted Wells investigate the behavior of Incognito and other Dolphins coaches and players.

Incognito was not signed by any team for the 2014 season. The Bills gave him a one-year deal the past February.

Incognito will join Wood and quarterback Tyrod Taylor, who were both selected Monday to replace Panthers players, in Hawaii. Running back LeSean McCoy was named to the game last month but will not play because of a knee injury.
