Justin Forsett Added To Pro Bowl Roster


The Ravens will need to add one more to next week's trip to Arizona. 

Running back Justin Forsett has officially been added to the Pro Bowl roster to take the place of Houston's Arian Foster who couldn't play because of an injury.

"I first want to thank all of my teammates and coaches that played a part, especially our offensive line and Juice [fullback Kyle Juszczyk,]" Forsett said. "It is as much credit to them as it is to me."

Forsett will join inside linebacker C.J. Mosley, outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil and right guard Marshal Yanda as the Ravens players in the Pro Bowl. Head Coach John Harbaugh and his coaching staff have also been selected to coach one of the all-star squads.

The Pro Bowl selection adds another impressive item to Forsett's 2014 resume. He had the best season of his career by far, rushing for 1,266 yards and eight touchdowns, and he was also selected as the team's most valuable player by the local media.

"Ever since I came into the league, it has been a goal of mine to win a Super Bowl, gain 1,000 yards and make it to the Pro Bowl," Forsett said. "Hope to check the third one off soon."

Forsett may not be the only Raven who gets a late invitation to the Pro Bowl. Juszcczyk is a first-alternate who will be added to the team if the Packers make the Super Bowl because he's behind Green Bay's John Kuhn. Outside linebacker Terrell Suggs, punter Sam Koch and kick returner Jacoby Jones are also first alternates.
