LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) - Chicago Bears receiver Alshon Jeffery is headed to his first Pro Bowl.

The NFL announced Thursday that he will replace injured Detroit star Calvin Johnson, a reward for a breakout season in his second year in the league.

Jeffery's 1,421 yards receiving this season ranked second in franchise history and his 89 receptions were sixth most.

He and Brandon Marshall are the first pair of Bears receivers to make the Pro Bowl in the same season. Chicago running back Matt Forte was also selected.
