Dolphins Players Confirm Pro Bowl Alternate Status

Timothy T. Ludwig-US PRESSWIRE

Yesterday, the NFL announced the rosters for the AFC and NFL Pro Bowl teams. Today, as the Miami Dolphins players spoke to the media after practice, several of them confirmed their status as a Pro Bowl alternate.

Last night, the NFL announced the 2013 Pro Bowl rosters, with Miami Dolphins defensive end Cameron Wake being named a starter for the AFC. Today, as the players spoke to the media after practice, several players confirmed they have been named as alternates for the game.

According to various Dolphins beat writers, wide receiver Brian Hartline, defensive tackles Randy Starks and Paul Soliai, guard Richie Incognito, and running back Reggie Bush all are alternates for the game. The two biggest snubs from the roster for the Dolphins, punter Brandon Fields and center Mike Pouncey, both confirmed that they are first alternates for the AFC.

Safety Reshad Jones, who has been among the top ranked safeties all season according to Pro Football Focus, stated that he was not selected as an alternate for the game.

Any of the Dolphins' alternates could make the game if a player currently on the roster has to pull out of the game due to injury. The NFL also replaces any player whose team advances to the Super Bowl, opening up some roster positions.
