Steelers' Clark goes to first Pro Bowl

Steelers safety Ryan Clark is headed to the first Pro Bowl in his 10-year NFL career after the Ravens' Ed Reed bowed out because of injury (most likely his shoulder). In many ways, Clark had a better season than Reed this year.

This is the second time that a Steelers player has replaced an injured Ravens one. Outside linebacker James Harrison stepped in for the Ravens' Terrell Suggs on Tuesday.

Clark led the NFL's top-ranked defense with a career-high 100 tackles this season. He added one interception and one sack.

Clark is the seventh Pittsburgh player to make the Pro Bowl, joining Harrison, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, wide receiver Mike Wallace, center Maurkice Pouncey, safety Troy Polamalu and kick returner Antonio Brown. But Polamalu and Pouncey won't play because of injury.
