Christian McCaffrey Named NFC Pro Bowl Replacement


The 2023 NFC Pro Bowl roster has been set ahead of this weekend's activities. Additionally, NFC Pro Bowl replacements have been named as well, and there are a lot of them.

The Philadelphia Eagles led the NFL in Pro Bowlers, with eight. However, with the Eagles playing in the 2023 Super Bowl, all of these players needed replacements. The Dallas Cowboys have the next-most players voted to the 2023 NFL Pro Bowl roster, with seven.

Christian McCaffrey Named to Pro Bowl

When the initial 2023 NFC Pro Bowl rosters came out, many NFL fans were frustrated that San Francisco 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey was snubbed. After all, McCaffrey has been among the best running backs in the league for the past several years.

He had been unable to stay healthy recently, but he played all 17 games this season, totaling 1,880 yards and 13 touchdowns in all.

With Miles Sanders unable to attend the Pro Bowl, due to playing in the Super Bowl, Christian McCaffrey was named to his first Pro Bowl since 2019.
