Jets center Mangold replaces Dolphins’ Pouncey in Pro Bowl
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — New York Jets center Nick Mangold has been added to the Pro Bowl roster as a replacement for the injured Mike Pouncey of the Miami Dolphins.
It will be the seventh Pro Bowl appearance for Mangold, who was chosen as a first alternate when rosters for the game to be played Jan. 31 in Hawaii were announced on Dec. 22. Mangold is one behind the franchise record by offensive tackle Winston Hill, who played in four AFL All-Star games and four Pro Bowls.
Pouncey missed the Dolphins’ final two games with a foot injury.
Mangold is the fourth Jets player selected, joining wide receiver Brandon Marshall, cornerback Darrelle Revis and defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson, who isn’t expected to play after breaking his right leg last Sunday.
