There will be one less Raiders in Hawaii. All-Pro corner Nnamdi Asomugha has been replaced by Champ Bailey on the AFC Pro-Bowl roster due to “medical reasons”.
Perhaps it is the nagging ankle injury that effectively made Asomugha a free agent that will keep him out of the game. Despite having four players on the AFC roster, only two Raiders will be making the trip to Hawaii. Shane Lechler will still be handling the AFC’s punting duties and Zach Miller replaced Antonio Gates earlier. Both Richard Seymour and now Nnamdi will be watching from home.
