Bears' Khalil Mack Won't Play In Pro Bowl

(670 The Score) Bears star pass rusher Khalil Mack once again won't play in the Pro Bowl, skipping out because of an apparent injury.

The Packers announced that Za'Darius Smith will be an injury replacement for Mack in the Pro Bowl in Orlando this Sunday. What injury Mack may have suffered isn't clear.

Mack was selected to his fifth Pro Bowl after posting 8.5 sacks this season. Mack also skipped the Pro Bowl a year ago. Back in January, he was mum when asked if he would participate, declining to answer the questions from reporters.

The Bears will be represented by three players in the Pro Bowl, with safety Eddie Jackson, cornerback Kyle Fuller and kickoff returner Cordarrelle Patterson each slated to play.

The Pro Bowl starts Sunday at 2 p.m. CT.
