Right tackle Lane Johnson is headed to the Pro Bowl as an alternate, becoming the sixth Eagles player selected for Sunday’s game in Orlando, Fla.
Johnson was named Tuesday as an injury replacement for Green Bay tackle David Bakhtiari. It will be the 29-year-old’s third Pro Bowl appearance in a row. He will be joined in Orlando by Eagles center Jason Kelce, defensive tackle Fletcher Cox, and long snapper Rick Lovato.

Eagles tight end Zach Ertz and right guard Brandon Brooks also were selected, but they are injured and will not play. Ertz ended the season with a fractured rib and a lacerated kidney, and Brooks broke a bone in his shoulder socket in the regular-season finale.
Johnson, a 2017 All-Pro selection, missed four games this season: one with a concussion, three with a high ankle sprain. He finished the year ranked No. 3 among offensive linemen by Pro Football Focus. According to PFF, he allowed only one sack and 18 hurries all season.
