Ed Reed withdraws from Pro Bowl

OWINGS MILLS -- Baltimore Ravens free safety Ed Reed withdrew from the Pro Bowl due to his multiple injuries and was replaced by Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Clark.

Reed, 33, is dealing with several ailments, including: a nerve impingement in his neck, a shoulder problem and a sprained left ankle.

The former NFL Defensive Player of the Year isn't the only Raven not playing in the Pro Bowl, joining outside linebacker Terrell Suggs, defensive tackle Haloti Ngata and running back Ray Rice.

Still slated to play in the annual NFL all-star game: fullback Vonta Leach, middle linebacker Ray Lewis and offensive guards Marshal Yanda and Ben Grubbs.
