Rodgers won't play in 2013 Pro Bowl

Due to an injury, Packers QB Aaron Rodgers will miss the Pro Bowl. Rodgers announced the decision on his weekly radio show.

Rodgers provided a great lack of details as to what the injury is, but it likely isn't serious. He did, at one point, mention an ongoing ankle injury. That is a possibility as he has been nursing his ankle since injuring it way back in Week 6 when the Pack were in Houston.

Rodgers is one of three Packers to make the team this year, along with LB Clay Matthews and C Jeff Saturday. Alternates will be announced later this week, giving the Packers a chance to add more players onto the NFC Roster.

I'd also point out he was the No. 1 QB of 2012 in taking 51 sacks (Philip Rivers was second with 49), so his entire body could probably use a break. By the way, the Packers should maybe look into doing something about that next season.
