Colts QB Andrew Luck to replace Tom Brady in Pro Bowl

Andrew Luck’s splendid rookie season was resurrected and extended Monday. He will end it by playing in the Pro Bowl at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu on Sunday.

Luck was added to the AFC roster as a replacement for New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who withdrew with an unspecified injury. Luck was first alternate at the position.

Luck and Houston’s Matt Schaub will back up starter Peyton Manning of the Denver Broncos, whom Luck succeeded as Colts quarterback. Manning will make his 12th Pro Bowl appearance; the first 11 came during his 14 seasons as a Colt, 1998-2011.

Like Manning, Luck was the first overall pick in the draft. Luck set NFL rookie records for passing yards (4,374), attempts (627), 300-yard games (six) and passing yards in a game (433).

He tied an NFL record shared by Manning by leading seven fourth-quarter or overtime winning drives to help the lightly regarded Colts to an 11-5 season
