The NFL announced the Pro Bowl selections Tuesday night, and three Bills players made the team of AFC all-stars.
The Bills invited are running back LeSean McCoy, left guard Richie Incognito and safety Micah Hyde. None of them were picked as starters.
More Bills will almost certainly be asked to join the game. The Pro Bowl is the week before the Super Bowl, so any player whose team is still playing won't be able to go. Others may skip the game due to injury or lack of interest. McCoy, for example, usually chooses not to play. Four Bills were chosen as alternates: Center Eric Wood (first alternate), defensive tackle Kyle Williams (second), tight end Charles Clay (third) and fullback Mike Tolbert (third).
Western New Yorkers Rob Gronkowski (Patriots tight end) and Brett Kern (Titans punter) were also selected as Pro Bowlers.
