Kwon Alexander is headed to the Pro Bowl.

The third-year Bucs linebacker, who led the NFL in solo tackles a year ago, was announced Tuesday as an injury replacement for Seattle's Bobby Wagner.

Alexander, 23, won't have to go far, as the game is back in Orlando at Camping World Stadium on Jan. 28. He'll join DT Gerald McCoy, who was the Bucs' lone selection when the initial team was announced last month.

Alexander tied for the team lead with three interceptions and finished second with 97 total tackles. Since he joined the league in 2015 out of LSU, he is the only player in the NFL with at least 300 tackles, six sacks and six interceptions.
