3 of 4 Redskins Selected to Pro Bowl Will Not Attend
Ryan Kerrigan, Jordan Reed and Brandon Scherff will not participate in next week’s Pro Bowl in Orlando, Florida. The three Redskins had to deal with injuries for most of the season and will miss the game while still recovering. The worst case being tight end Jordan Reed, who suffered a separated shoulder on Thanksgiving playing against the Cowboys.
Panthers announce that Trai Turner will be replacing Brandon Scherff at the 2017 Pro Bowl. Kerrigan and Reed have also been replaced.

Kerrigan spent a good portion of the season dealing with an injured elbow and then injured his finger in the week 17 season finale against New York. Scherff dealt with an injured ankle the last few weeks of the season.
Trent Williams is the lone Redskins player who was originally selected to the exhibition game that is still slated to attend. While all four deserved the honor, it’s good to see they value getting their health right over extracurricular activities.
For Reed and Scherff it marks the first selection for both young players, the duo will surely see more in the future. Kerrigan played in the game in 2012 while Williams was selected to play in his fifth straight this year.
