INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - The Indianapolis Colts will have two players playing in the 2013 Pro Bowl on Sunday, Jan. 27 at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii.
The NFL announced on Wednesday that Colts outside linebacker Robert Mathis and wide receiver Reggie Wayne have been selected to the 2013 NFL Pro Bowl. This is the fifth time Mathis has been selected and the sixth time for Wayne.
In 11 games (all starts) this season, Mathis has recorded 45 tackles (27 solo), eight sacks, one interception and one forced fumble. He tied a career high this year with a sack in eight consecutive games dating back to last season. In Week 13 at Detroit, he recorded his first career interception when he picked off Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford. This year marks Mathis’ fifth consecutive Pro Bowl selection, which is tied for the seventh-longest streak in team history.
Wayne has appeared in all 15 games this season (14 starts), recording 102 receptions for 1,315 yards and five touchdowns. He ranks second in the AFC in receptions this season and third in receiving yards. Last week at Kansas City, Wayne recorded his fourth season with 100-or-more receptions, which ranks tied for second in NFL history. He also became the third active player and 14th in NFL history to reach the 13,000-yard milestone in the game.
