NASHVILLE – Titans left guard Rodger Saffold is headed to the Pro Bowl.
Saffold on Monday was named to the Pro Bowl as a replacement for Colts guard Quenton Nelson, who is unable to participate due to injury.
This marks first Pro Bowl appearance for Saffold, a 12-year veteran who started 15 games for the Titans in 2021.
Saffold, initially named as one of the team's alternates, joins Titans safety Kevin Byard, outside linebacker Harold Landry and defensive lineman Jeffery Simmons as Pro Bowlers. Byard was initially the team's lone Pro Bowl representative after the vote from players, coaches and fans. Landry, Simmons and Saffold have since been added as alternates.
When the Pro Bowl teams were announced in December, the Titans were also informed four other players (in no particular order) were chosen as alternates for the 2022 Pro Bowl – long snapper Morgan Cox, left tackle Taylor Lewan, defensive lineman Denico Autry and linebacker/special teams ace Ola Adeniyi. To date, none of those four have been added as replacements.
The 2022 Pro Bowl will be played at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on Sunday, February 6, at 2 p.m. CST and will be televised on ESPN, ESPN Deportes and simulcast on ABC.
