Bengals Quarterback Andy Dalton has secured a spot on the roster for the Pro Bowl, the NFL announced on Tuesday.

Dalton, who was on the 2011 Pro Bowl roster, was the seventh alternate in December's Pro Bowl voting. He'll replace Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers, who is unable to participate due to an injury.

The addition of Dalton gives the Bengals four players in the Pro Bowl.

Wide receiver AJ Green and punter Kevin Huber were voted in directly. Defensive tackle Geno Atkins was added as a third alternate to replace Detroit's Ndamukong Suh.

The Pro Bowl teams will be known as Team Carter and Team Irvin, after Hall of Fame wide receivers Cris Carter and Michael Irvin. Dalton and the other Bengals will be assigned to teams tomorrow night, during the Pro Bowl Draft show at 8 p.m. on NFL Network.

The Pro Bowl will be played on Sun., Jan 25. at 8 p.m. at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz. The game will be nationally televised on ESPN.
