Default Ben invited, but not going to Pro Bowl

brady dropped outta the pro bowl, as usual, and ben was the first alternate, but doctors advised him not to play because of his shoulder, so hes not going. im wondering if that still counts as being a pro bowler, i mean, will ben now be considered a 2-time pro bowler?

Irrelevant. I'd rather he didn't play so he doesn't get hurt.

He'll count, they usually count the first alternate, even if they can't play.

The Pro Bowl is trash anyway. I don't know why people actually want to watch it...
