The Texans can still say they have three Pro Bowlers but only two will be playing in the game in Hawaii.

Andre Johnson, who was named to his seventh Pro Bowl, won't be playing for undisclosed reasons. Fox26 reported he will skip the game because of a wrist injury that won't require surgery. DeSean Jackson from the Eagles will take his place.

Johnson, 32, caught 109 passes for 1,407 yards in 2013.

This ended up being a nice little swap with the Eagles. Last week, Duane Brown made the Pro Bowl to replace Eagles tackle Jason Peters.

Jackson had the best season of his six-year career in 2013. He caught 82 passes for 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns.

The Texans will be represented by Brown and Pro Bowl captain J.J. Watt.
