Three of the players selected to represent the Eagles in the Pro Bowl will not be participating.

The NFL announced that Houston tackle Duane Brown will replace Jason Peters, Detroit wide receiver Golden Tate will take Jeremy Maclin's place and running back LeSean McCoy's spot will go to Washington's Alfred Morris in the all-star festivities.

The Eagles currently have nine players who were selected to the Pro Bowl in addition to Maclin, McCoy and Peters: linebacker Connor Barwin, long snapper Jon Dorenbos, center Jason Kelce, guard Evan Mathis, kicker Cody Parkey and returner Darren Sproles.

Parkey was added to the Pro Bowl team on Monday afternoon replacing New England's Stephen Gostkowski.

Maclin earned Pro Bowl honors for the first time in 2014 after a career season, one in which he nearly set the franchise records for most catches and yards receiving in a year. A candidate for the NFL's Comeback Player of the Year Award after missing all of 2013 with a knee injury, Maclin caught 85 passes for 1,318 yards and scored 10 touchdowns.

A year after leading the league in rushing and setting a franchise record for rushing yards in a season, McCoy became the Eagles' all-time leading rusher in 2014 as he finished third in the NFL with 1,319 yards rushing. He remains one of the league's best running backs and is unmatched in his ability to make defenders miss.

Peters received the honor of being selected to the Pro Bowl for the seventh time in his NFL career. He has been named to the Pro Bowl in each of the five seasons in which he's played a game for the Eagles since joining the team in 2009. In 2014, Peters was the only member of the offensive line to start every game as he continued to be one of the league's most unique and powerful offensive linemen. will be in Glendale, Arizona for all of this week's Pro Bowl action. The Pro Bowl Draft will be televised this Wednesday at 8 PM on NFL Network. The game is slated for Sunday, January 25 at 8 PM on ESPN.
