It's unknown if Leon Hall or Johnathan Joseph will be selected as an alternate for this year's Pro Bowl. However, Cedric Benson's season earned him a second alternate at running back, writes Joe Reedy.

 “It was a bit surprising. A lot of guys played consistent. I can’t put my finger on it,” Benson said. “It seems like the running back situation came down to yards: A wise man once told me when it comes down to the business end of the deal the only thing that matters is the yards at the end of the season.”
