Bucs receiver Vincent Jackson has been added to the NFC Pro Bowl roster, replacing injured Lions receiver Calvin Johnson.

Jackson becomes the team's second Pro Bowl selection, joining original selection Gerald McCoy.

With 1,384 yards and 72 catches in 2012, Jackson registered career highs in both categories. Jackson was one of just seven receivers this season to surpass 200 yards in a single game, finishing with 216 yards in Week 7 against the Saints.

The Bucs could add at least one more Pro Bowl selection if the 49ers defeat the Falcons in Sunday's NFC Championship Game. That would make Frank Gore unavailable for the Pro Bowl, making running back alternate Doug Martin the next option.
