Marshal Yanda Will Not Participate In 2017 Pro Bowl

Posted Jan 12, 2017

The Ravens guard may be getting shoulder surgery this offseason after playing through a major injury this season. Baltimore is now down to three Pro Bowlers in Orlando.


The Ravens are down to three Pro Bowlers this year in Orlando.

Guard Marshal Yanda has withdrawn from the 2017 Pro Bowl after he played much of the season with a major injury to his left shoulder.

When the season ended, Yanda said he didn’t know whether he would play. He was trying to determine whether he would need surgery. There is still no official word on whether he will.

Yanda will be replaced by Buffalo Bills offensive lineman Richie Incognito. The Bills and Incognito officially announced the change Wednesday.

The Ravens’ three Pro Bowlers, unless any other additions or subtractions are made, will be kicker Justin Tucker, fullback Kyle Juszczyk and linebacker C.J. Mosley. Mosley suffered a calf strain in the regular-season finale in Cincinnati.

Future Hall of Fame linebacker Ray Lewis will also serve as an AFC legendary captain, and will help coach the Pro Bowlers.

Yanda was voted to his sixth straight Pro Bowl after another season dominating in the trenches. His season could have been over after suffering the shoulder injury on Oct. 9 against the Washington Redskins. Yanda, who had missed just two starts in the previous six seasons, sat out three of the next four games.

He proposed switching from right guard to left guard after coming up with the idea while watching his alma mater, Iowa, play. He called Ravens Offensive Line Coach Juan Castillo to bounce the idea off him, and tested it in practice the following week.

It was his first time playing the position, but Yanda still played at an extremely high level. He was graded as the top guard in the NFL by Pro Football Focus (PFF) for the third straight year. Only two offensive players in the NFL had higher grades – New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan.

Yanda said he will return to right guard next season. He has dealt with shoulder injuries and surgeries before in his career and bounced back.

“I feel like it’s engrained in us to not blink, not flinch, get back to work, and everybody starts their offseason programs,” Yanda said after the season ended. “Guys take care of their injuries and stuff like that to get ready to go for the next year.”
