The 2011 Pro Bowl rosters were announced tonight during an exclusive television event on NFL Network and Adrian Peterson was the lone Vikings representative. Other Vikings could be added to the NFC’s roster as alternates should injuries or other reasons prevent starters from playing in the game.
Heading into tonight’s action, Peterson has 1,149 yards rushing with 11 TDs. He’s averaging 4.7 yards per carry and hasn’t lost a fumble yet this season (knock on wood). Currently Peterson ranks 11th in the NFL in rushing, but keep in mind that everyone in front of him played a game this past weekend. Peterson has been among the top 3 or 4 rushers during the season.
This will be Peterson’s 4th Pro Bowl honor – he’s made the all-star game in every season of his career.
The 2011 Pro Bowl will be played on January 30 in Honolulu, HI.
