Saturday Named To Pro Bowl As Replacement For Steelers Pouncey

Last updated on Tuesday, January 25, 2011

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - Indianapolis Colts center Jeff Saturday will head to Hawaii for this Sunday’s Pro Bowl.

The twelve-year veteran was named to the AFC squad Monday as a replacement for Pittsburgh center Maurkice Pouncey after the Steelers advanced to Super Bowl 45.

This will be Saturday's fifth Pro Bowl nod and the fourth time he will play in the game.

He was named to last season's AFC team but did not play in the game when the Colts reached the Super Bowl.

Last year was the first time the Pro Bowl was held one week before the Super Bowl, excusing Super Bowl participants from playing in the NFL's annual all-star game.
