NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee quarterback Steve McNair was added to the AFC's Pro Bowl roster Tuesday as a replacement for Denver's Jake Plummer, who won't play due to an injury.

This will be McNair's third Pro Bowl but first in relatively good health. He was chosen as an injury replacement for Brian Griese after the 2000 season, but couldn't play because of a shoulder injury. He lasted four plays with a cracked bone spur in his left ankle as the AFC starter after the 2003 season, which included a 90-yard touchdown pass.


McNair is scheduled to be in Honolulu by Wednesday.


"It's a great opportunity to be part of the Pro Bowl," McNair said in a statement. "Anytime you get a chance to compete against the best in the NFL, it is certainly something you look forward to."


McNair couldn't start the season finale against Jacksonville because of a strained pectoral muscle. But he started 14 games in his 11th NFL season, throwing for 3,161 yards in the fifth-highest total of his career. He was 292-of-476 with 16 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.


McNair is the second Tennessee player to be added to the Pro Bowl roster since the season ended. Defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch was an injury replacement for Miami end Jason Taylor.

Someone mentioned they offered the spot to Big Ben and he declined.
