Fred not eligible for Pro Bowl

Posted by Chris Brown on November 29, 2011 – 1:50 pm

As recently as two weeks ago Fred Jackson was among the leading vote getters for the Pro Bowl, but now that he’s been placed on I-R the Pro Bowl is off the table.

Buffalobills.com confirmed with the league office that I-R’d players are not eligible to participate in the Pro Bowl that same year.

Fred Jackson’s name has since been removed from the fan ballot at NFL.com, and presumably will not appear on the coaches or players ballots when they vote in mid-December.

Jackson likely would’ve been completely recovered from his broken fibula in time to play in the annual all-star game if selected.
