Seahawks safety Earl Thomas last week announced he will not play in the Pro Bowl on Sunday to rest up his body.

Monday it was revealed that Kam Chancellor will also skip the game.

That news came via the Colts, who announced in a press release that Mike Adams is taking the spot of Chancellor.

Chancellor battled a pelvis injury at the end of the regular season but came back to play in Seattle’s two post-season games.

This week, save 75% on select subscriptions.

Chancellor was one of seven Seahawks voted to the Pro Bowl, which is Jan. 31 in Honolulu, tying a team record set also in 1984 and 2005.

Along with Thomas and Chancellor, the other Seahawks who were invited were: defensive end Michael Bennett, sreturn specialist Tyler Lockett, cornerback Richard Sherman, linebacker Bobby Wagner and quarterback Russell Wilson.

The seven players invited also tied Arizona and New England for the second-most behind the 10 of Carolina.

While the roster has changed quite a bit in the last week, as typically happens, the Seahawks have not yet had any additional players added.
