The Pittsburgh Steelers were already going to be well-represented at the 2012 NFL Pro Bowl, but because of an injury to Ravens safety Ed Reed, they will add another player in safety Ryan Clark, according to Scott Brown of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
Free safety Ryan Clark will join four other Steelers in playing in the Pro Bowl on Sunday. Clark, who led the Steelers with 100 tackles during the regular season, had been named a second alternate to the AFC team last month. He was added to the squad this morning as an injury replacement for Ravens safety Ed Reed.
Clark joins Polamalu on the Pro Bowl roster, meaning that both of the Steelers starting safeties will make the trip this year. That's impressive, but it speaks to just how effective this defense was all season long.
