January 20, 2013
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie running back Doug Martin is being added to the NFC Pro Bowl roster, taking the place of San Francisco 49ers runner Frank Gore, who'll go to the Super Bowl instead.
Martin is the Bucs' first rookie in the Pro Bowl since kick returner Clifton Smith in 2008.
Martin, the 30th pick in last April's NFL draft, ran for 1,454 yards and 11 touchdowns this season. His yards rushing ranked fifth in the league.
Gore ran for two touchdowns to help San Francisco beat the Atlanta Falcons 28-24 in the NFC championship game Sunday.
The Pro Bowl will be played in Hawaii next Sunday.
