Broncos left tackle Ryan Clady can still write "Pro Bowl 2013" in his bio if he wishes, but the fifth-year veteran will not make the trip to Hawaii next week because of a shoulder injury.
Clady formally withdrew from the game Tuesday and will be replaced by Bengals' left tackle Andrew Whitworth. Clady looked limited at times in the Broncos' 38-35 double-overtime loss to the Ravens Saturday.
He had been held out of the Broncos three practices during the team's playoff bye, but had practiced last week leading up to the Divisional Round game. Clady also had a hamstring injury during the season that limited him some in practice, but he has not missed a game in his career having started 80 in a row in the regilar season to go with three career playoff games.
The Broncos' coaching staff will direct the AFC's team next week as quarterback Peyton Manning, cornerback Champ Bailey, defensive end Elvis Dumervil and linebacker Von Miller are still slated to play in the all-star game.
Wide receiver Demaryius Thomas was voted as a first alternate so he would go if another receiver withdraws because of injury or if New England advances to the Super Bowl. The Patriots' Wes Welker was one of four receivers chosen for the AFC's team so Thomas would replace him if the Patriots win the AFC Championship Game on Sunday.
