While four NFL franchises are busy preparing for a crucial conference championship weekend, the rest of the league is focused on the Pro Bowl. The league's annual Pro Bowl is just over a week away in Las Vegas on Feb. 5, but one Pittsburgh Steelers player will be unable to attend. T.J. Watt is not participating because of an injury.

Now that Watt is unable to play, a Buffalo Bills player will take his place instead.

Bills linebacker Matt Milano has been named as a last-minute replacement for Watt. This is the first-ever Pro Bowl appearance in Milano's six-year career, although he was also named an All-Pro for his career year in 2022.

Milano finished second on the Bills with 99 combined tackles and led the team with 12 tackles for loss. He also racked up a career-high 3 interceptions, one which he took back for a touchdown.

Considering Buffalo has already been eliminated from the playoffs, Milano should be available to attend the new-look Pro Bowl, which will feature a flag football game this year.
