La valse des forfaits se poursuit pour le Pro Bowl. Cette fois, ce sont Earl Thomas (S, Seahawks), Antonio Brown (WR, Steelers), LeSean McCoy (RB, Bills) et Branden Albert (OT, Dolphins) qui ne feront pas le voyage à Hawaii.

Thomas a pris le temps d’expliquer sur Instagram qu’il souhaite prendre du temps pour se soigner et retrouver la pleine santé.

Le remplaçant de Thomas n’a pas encore été annoncé, mais on sait déjà que Jarvis Landry (WR, Dolphins) remplacera Brown, que Chris Ivory (RB, Jets) sera là à la place de McCoy, et que Trent Williams (OT, Redskins) prendra la place d’Albert.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the players, coaches, and most importantly, all of the fans who voted me into this year’s Pro Bowl. I have always considered being selected as one of the highest honors bestowed on any player in the league. While I value the significance of being named to the Pro Bowl, I unfortunately will not be able to participate in this year’s upcoming game. It is without question that I will miss taking the trip out to Hawaii and enjoying the festivities with my fellow NFL brothers and all the fans, but I look forward to getting my body fully healthy and working to bring another Super Bowl home to Seattle!
