Duane Brown headed back to Hawaii

The Houston Texans will send at least three players to the Pro Bowl this season.

Today the team announced Duane Brown was added to the Pro Bowl roster when Philadelphia tackle Jason Peters backed out. He was originally a first alternate.

Brown earned his first Pro Bowl selection last season when he was also an All-Pro. This year he'll join defensive end J.J. Watt and receiver Andre Johnson in Hawaii.

The Pro Bowl is no longer split by conference. Teams will be selected in a draft from the total pool by Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders.

Two more players could still make it as alternates: cornerback Johnathan Joseph and center Chris Myers.
