NFL: Cowboys QB Romo, CB Jenkins added to Pro Bowl
IRVING, Texas — Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is going to his third Pro Bowl, while Dallas cornerback Mike Jenkins will go for the first time.
The Cowboys announced Monday that Romo and Jenkins had been added to the NFC roster as injury replacements. Dallas has seven players going to Sunday’s game in Miami.
Romo replaces Minnesota’s Brett Favre, who pulled out of the Pro Bowl after hurting his ankle and taking numerous hard hits in the NFC championship game loss at New Orleans on Sunday. Romo this season set Cowboys’ single-season records by completing 347 of 550 passes for 4,483 yards while taking every snap. He had a career-low nine interceptions.
Jenkins will take the roster spot of Vikings cornerback Antoine Winfield (foot). Jenkins, a second-year player, led Dallas with five interceptions and 23 pass breakups.
