2011 NFL Pro Bowl: Cutler And Hester Among Bears Pro Bowl Alternates

The Bears not only have five players named to this years Pro Bowl with Charles Tillman, Corey Graham, Matt Forte, Lance Briggs, and Brian Urlacher making the squad, they also have several alternates.

Six other Bears with a chance to make the January 29th trip to Hawaii are Devin Hester, Roberto Garza, Robbie Gould, Henry Melton, Jay Cutler, and Julius Peppers.

If history is any indication, expect a few of these players to get added to the Pro Bowl roster. Depending on who makes the Super Bowl and who is banged up, many of those named to the initial roster remove themselves from the team.

Jay Cutler and Matt Forte are unlikely to play because of injury, and it wouldn't be a complete surprise if Brian Urlacher decided to not make the trip either because his knee is banged up.
