Turns out there will be one more game in Russell Wilson's remarkable rookie season.

The Seahawks quarterback — who tied the NFL's rookie record with 26 touchdown passes — will be joining five of his teammates at the Pro Bowl, filling the spot held by Atlanta's Matt Ryan. Ryan suffered a shoulder injury during Sunday's NFC Championship Game.

Wilson was originally the third alternate quarterback for the NFC.

He joins a Seattle Pro Bowl contingent that includes safety Earl Thomas, center Max Unger, left tackle Russell Okung, returner Leon Washington and running back Marshawn Lynch.
