Ravens quarterback Tyler Huntley is headed to the Pro Bowl.
The team announced that Huntley was named to the AFC roster, replacing Bills quarterback Josh Allen. Allen suffered an elbow injury for most of the season and his health is cited as the reason for the change.
When the initial Pro Bowl voting was completed, Huntley was a surprise selection as the fourth alternate. He appeared in four regular season games after third substitute Lamar Jackson went down with a season-ending knee injury and was not particularly effective in those games.
Jackson is unavailable due to injury and Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, who was their best substitute, is also unavailable for the game. Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence was named the replacement for Patrick Mahomes, and Huntley got the nod to take place at skill contests, flag football games, and other activities scheduled by the NFL in lieu of traditional Pro Bowl games.
