TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Tampa Bay receiver Vincent Jackson has been added to the NFC Pro Bowl, replacing Detroit's Calvin Johnson, who broke the NFL's single- season record for reception yards in 2012.

 

The NFL made the announcement Tuesday.

 

Jackson led the Bucs with career bests of 72 receptions and 1,384 yards after signing with them as a free agent last winter.

 

Johnson had 122 receptions and broke Jerry Rice's record for receiving yards in a season with 1,964 while playing through nagging injuries most of the year.

 

The Lions listed Johnson on the team's final injury report with knee and ankle ailments. The receiver also said earlier in the season he had nerve damage after being hit in the head and neck area early in the season by Minnesota linebacker Chad Greenway.
