Broncos CB Champ Bailey and Cowboys WR Miles Austin have been added to the AFC and NFC Pro Bowl rosters, respectively, as injury replacements.

This will be the 10th Pro Bowl appearance of Bailey's 12-year career. Bailey now has been selected for more Pro Bowls than any other cornerback in the history of the NFL, breaking a tie with Hall of Famer Mike Haynes. He replaced Raiders CB Nnamdi Asomugha, who will not participate for medical reasons. Bailey is the second Bronco on the AFC squad, joining WR Brandon Lloyd.

Bailey totaled 45 tackles (41 solo), one sack, two interceptions and 13 passes defensed in 15 starts in ’10.

Austin, who is making his second consecutive Pro Bowl appearance, is an injury replacement for Eagles WR DeSean Jackson, who is still recovering from an MCL sprain that he suffered in the wild-card playoff loss to the Packers.

In ’10, Austin was second on the team with 69 receptions for a team-high 1,041 yards with seven TD catches. He is the sixth Cowboy to play in this year's Pro Bowl, joining C Andre Gurode, P Mat McBriar, DT Jay Ratliff, OLB DeMarcus Ware and TE Jason Witten.
