Earlier in the week, the NFL announced this year’s Pro-Bowl rosters, and five Eagles were among the players voted onto the NFC squad, but several more could be joining their teammates in the all-star game, as Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that LeSean McCoy, Owen Schmitt, Todd Herremans, Trent Cole, and Quintin Mikell have all been named alternates for the contest, meaning that if original participants are unable to suit up for the Pro-Bowl because of injuries, personal reasons, or other issues, they will be inserted into the lineup.
McCoy is probably the most deserving of the alternates listed, as he has quietly been a big key to the Eagles’ offense this season, leading the team in receptions and topping the 1,000-yard mark on the ground, though big names like Adrian Peterson are likely to have kept him out of the actual Pro-Bowl discussion. He, along with Herremans and Cole, is a first alternate, while Schmitt and Mikell will need two players to leave the NFC roster in order to play.
