Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins has been named to the Pro Bowl and will participate in the exhibition game on Sunday in Orlando. Cousins was initially picked as an alternate but will replace Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

This is the first time Cousins has been selected to the Pro Bowl. In his second season as Washington’s starting quarterback, Cousins had 4,917 passing yards, 29 total touchdowns and 12 interceptions. He finished the year with a 97.2 passer rating, which finished seventh among qualified passers.

Cousins will join left tackle Trent Williams as the Redskins’ only two Pro Bowl representatives. Outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan, tight end Jordan Reed and right guard Brandon Scherff all withdrew from the Pro Bowl because of injuries.
