DeMarco Murray added to Pro Bowl

IRVING, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys have their fifth Pro Bowler with running back DeMarco Murray named as an injury replacement for San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore.

Murray ran for 1,124 yards on 217 carries with nine touchdowns in 14 games. He missed two games because of a knee injury. He is the first Dallas running back to make the NFL’s all-star game since Marion Barber in 2007. He became the first Cowboys player with 1,000 yards since 2006 when Julius Jones gained 1,084 yards.

Murray will join wide receiver Dez Bryant and left tackle Tyron Smith, who were voted into the game, as well as tight end Jason Witten and defensive tackle Jason Hatcher, who were added as injury replacements, this week in Hawaii.

This the most Pro Bowl players the Cowboys have had since they had six in 2010: Miles Austin, Andre Gurode, Mat McBriar, Jay Ratliff, DeMarcus Ware and Witten. They had just five Pro Bowl selections in the last two seasons combined.
