  • Text size: + -

A few of the Bills are headed to Hawaii. C.J. Spiller, Kyle Williams and Jairus Byrd were added to the AFC Pro Bowl roster.

Spiller takes the place of Ray Rice. Williams steps in for Haloti Ngata, while Byrd is in for Ed Reed, with the Ravens headed to the Super Bowl after beating the Patriots in the AFC title game.

Byrd earns his second Pro Bowl nod in his four career seasons, the previous in 2009. The safety tied for the AFC lead with five interceptions and totalled 76 tackles.

For Williams, it will mark his second trip to the Pro Bowl having gone in 2010. This year the defensive tackle recorded five sacks and 46 tackles, 27 of them solo.

Spiller earns his first trip to Hawaii, after a breakout season that saw the running back rush for a career high 1,244 yards and six touchdowns. Spiller also tied for the NFL lead in averaging six yards per carry.

"I'm very excited," Spiller said. "It's something that's well deserved, not only by me, but by my teammates and all the opposing coaches and my peers that voted for me to have this opportunity to go represent the greatest organization in the National Football League."
