Jets DE Shaun Ellis added to AFC Pro Bowl roster

New York Jets defensive end Shaun Ellis has been added to the

AFC Pro Bowl roster, replacing the Indianapolis Colts’ Robert

Mathis.

Mathis is unable to play in the NFL’s all-star game in Miami on

Sunday because he’ll be preparing for the Super Bowl against New

Orleans the following week. Mathis is one of seven Colts players

being replaced on the Pro Bowl roster.

Ellis will play in his second Pro Bowl, and first since the 2003

season, despite having a broken left hand that requires

surgery.

Ellis had 6 1/2 sacks during the regular season and ranks third

in franchise history with 68 sacks. He joins cornerback Darrelle

Revis, left guard Alan Faneca, center Nick Mangold and left tackle

D’Brickashaw Ferguson as Jets in the Pro Bowl.
