OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP)

Baltimore Ravens free safety Ed Reed has withdrawn from the Pro Bowl due to multiple injuries, becoming the latest of several players from his team to skip Sunday's all-star game.

The 33-year-old Reed is dealing with ailments that include a nerve impingement in his neck, a sore shoulder and a sprained left ankle.

He will be replaced by Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Clark.

The Ravens lost to New England last Sunday in the AFC title game. Since that time, several Baltimore players have withdrawn from the Pro Bowl: outside linebacker Terrell Suggs (undisclosed), defensive tackle Haloti Ngata (thigh) and running back Ray Rice (family reasons).

Fullback Vonta Leach, middle linebacker Ray Lewis and guards Marshal Yanda and Ben Grubbs are still slated to play.
