Josh Sitton named to Pro Bowl
The Chicago Bears will now have two representatives in this year's Pro Bowl.
An injury to a former teammate has opened up the door for Josh Sitton to head to his fourth Pro Bowl.

Sitton spent his first eight years in the league with the Green Bay Packers and was named to the Pro Bowl following the 2012, 2014 and 2015 seasons. He will replaced Green Bay's T.J. Lang.
The Packers released Sitton just before the start of the year, and he quickly signed a three-year deal with the Bears ahead of Week 1.
The veteran guard missed three games due to injuries, but according to Pro Football Focus, he only allowed six quarterback hurries and zero sacks in 734 snaps at left guard.
Sitton joins running back Jordan Howard as the only two members of the Bears at the Pro Bowl.
