HOUSTON – Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson will replace Super Bowl-bound New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in the upcoming NFL Pro Bowl.

Watson was originally named an alternate for Sunday’s game in Orlando, Florida. Now, he’ll join his teammates Jadeveon Clowney, DeAndre Hopkins, Benardrick McKinney and Lamar Miller for the game.

J.J. Watt was replaced on the Pro Bowl roster by Calais Campbell. Watt is recovering from knee surgery.

This will be Watson’s first Pro Bowl appearance. He logged 4,165 passing yards, 26 passing touchdowns, 551 rushing yards and five rushing touchdowns this season.

This is the most Texans players elected to the Pro Bowl since 2012, and the 15th consecutive season that the Texans have had at least one player elected to the game.
