The Jaguars will have a representative in the Pro Bowl after all.

Linebacker Paul Posluszny will replace injured 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis in Sunday’s game in Honolulu, according to the team’s website. Posluszny, a seven-year veteran, will be making his first appearance in the game.

"I’m glad we have the opportunity to go, and I’m glad the Jaguars can say we have a player there for our defense and our organization," Posluszny told the Jaguars’ website.

Posluszny led Jacksonville with 161 tackles in 2013, adding three sacks and two interceptions. He also picked up his first career touchdown when he picked off Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning in Week 6.
