NEW YORK, Jan. 30 (UPI) -- Baltimore Ravens running back Willis McGahee will replace the injured LaDainian Tomlinson on the AFC squad at the Pro Bowl in Honolulu next month.

Tomlinson suffered a hyper-extended left knee in San Diego's 28-24 victory in an AFC divisional playoff at Indianapolis Jan. 13, and was limited to just two carries for five yards in the Chargers' 21-12 loss at New England in the AFC Championship Game a week later.

"It is an honor and a privilege to be going to the Pro Bowl, especially when your peers have a say in the matter," said McGahee, who had been selected as an alternate and will make his first Pro Bowl appearance in the Feb. 10 game. "It is a goal that I have had for a long time, and I am going to enjoy every second of this."

McGahee was the AFC's fourth-leading rusher during the 2007 season, scoring seven times and gaining 1,207 yards on 294 carries. He also scored a touchdown and picked up 231 yards on 43 pass receptions.
