One day after telling Dennis & Callahan in his weekly Patriots Monday interview  that he was interested in playing in the Pro Bowl , Tom Brady was replaced by Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith .
Brady, who reportedly played with ligament damage in his throwing hand  this season, told D&C: “I’d love to be able to go. We’ll see. … I’ve got to kind of figure out what’s going on here in Foxboro. There’s a lot of things to talk about with our coaches. And then we’ll go from there.”
Smith had a career year, completing 308-of-508 passes for 3,313 yards with 23 touchdowns and seven interceptions. His inclusion gives Kansas City a league-high 10 Pro Bowlers.
