One week after LeSean McCoy elected against participating in this year's NFL Pro Bowl due to an injury, the Bills will, in fact, have some representation at Aloha Stadium in Hawaii this weekend.

Quarterback Tyrod Taylor and center Eric Wood were selected to the Pro Bowl this weekend, taking the place of Carolina quarterback Cam Newton and center Ryan Kalil. McCoy was the Bills' lone representative before the announcement was made on Monday.

Taylor is the first Bills quarterback to participate in the Pro Bowl since Drew Bledsoe in 2002. Taylor threw for 3,035 yards, 20 touchdowns and had only six interceptions to go along with it. He also set a franchise record for rushing yards by a quarterback with 568.

Wood started all 16 games for the Bills this season, and is the only offensive lineman on the team that will participate in the event. He's the first Bills center to play in the Pro Bowl since Kent Hull did so in 1990.

The game will be played Sunday in Honolulu.
