2012 Pro Bowl: Ben Roethlisberger Will Make Trip Despite Ankle Injury

The Pittsburgh Steelers were knocked out of the NFL Playoffs by the Denver Broncos and Tim Tebow, as I'm sure you all remember. But Tebow and Roesthlisberger were also linked in an interesting way regarding the 2012 Pro Bowl. Roehtlisberger made the roster while Tebow was named an alternate. If Roethlisberger decided not to make the trip to Hawaii because of his ankle injury, Tebow would make the roster. Turns out that is not the case.

I wonder if the alternate quarterback was someone other than Tebow, the man who ended their season, if Roethlisberger would be more willing to sit out and let the alternate into the game.

We'll have the final roster announcements for you in this StoryStream. For more on the Steelers, check out Behind The Steel Curtain, SB Nation's Pittsburgh Steelers blog.
