Indianapolis Colts rookie quarterback Andrew Luck will play in the NFL Pro Bowl after New England's Tom Brady withdrew because of injury.

Luck will join Denver's Peyton Manning and Houston's Matt Schaub as the quarterbacks for the AFC.

After being picked No.1 in the 2012 NFL Draft,, Luck completed one of the best rookie seasons in franchise and league history.

His 11 wins were the most by a No. 1 overall draft pick and he became one of five rookie quarterbacks since 1966 to win 10 or more games. Luck also recorded the most passing yards (4,374), attempts (627) and 300-yard passing games (six) by a rookie quarterback. He set the rookie single-game record for passing yards by a rookie (433) in the team's win over the Miami Dolphins.

Luck will join teammates Reggie Wayne and Robert Mathis in the Pro Bowl. Wayne is making his sixth career appearance while Mathis is recording his fifth selection.
