McNabb, Mikell going to Pro Bowl


Quarterback Donovan McNabb and safety Quintin Mikell were officially added to the NFC Pro Bowl roster this morning.

It's McNabb's sixth Pro Bowl selection and the first for Mikell.

McNabb replaces Drew Brees and Mikell replaces Roman Harper. The two Saints cannot play in the Pro Bowl because they are playing in the Super Bowl the following week. Harper had been an injury replacement for Arizona's Adrian Wilson.

The Eagles now have nine players going to Miami for Sunday's game. The nine players are the most since 10 players were selected for the game after the 2004 season, the year the Eagles went to the Super Bowl.

The other Birds scheduled to play in the game are wide receiver DeSean Jackson, offensive tackle Jason Peters, long snapper Jon Dorenbos, fullback Leonard Weaver, defensive end Trent Cole, cornerback Asante Samuel and kicker David Akers.


The NFL said it will only have one game in London next season -- the previously announced game between the 49ers and Broncos at Wembley Stadium on Oct. 31. The NFL cited the economy and also the collective bargaining situation between the league and its players for not adding a second game. The Eagles had been rumored to be the 49ers' opponent in London.
