Irsay pursued Gruden to be Colts head coach (1:12)

Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer 

Colts punter Pat McAfee announced on social media that he will not be kicking in the Pro Bowl as he prepares for surgery on his knee. Some of his post: "While looking at the scans of my right knee with me, my doctor informed me the injury I suffered in Week 10, is absolutely going to require surgery. This will be my 3rd knee surgery in 4 years. With that being said, after a little bit of deliberation, I am choosing not to participate in the Pro Bowl, because I do not want to risk any further damage before the surgery takes place. "…As a punter or kicker, being selected to the Pro Bowl means that your punting and kicking peers, the folks who actually know what makes a good punter or not, chose you to be the guy. For me, just as it was the first time I was selected, this is an incredible honor. I thank everybody who voted for me to be in the game but it's time I think about enjoying walking without pain for a couple weeks before my surgery makes this bad boy brand new…again."
