CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Bengals left tackle Andrew Whitworth has been added to the Pro Bowl squad, replacing Denver's injured Ryan Clady.

Whitworth was a first alternate for the Jan. 27 game in Honolulu. It'll be Whitworth's first trip to the Pro Bowl.

The seventh-year lineman has started every game for the Bengals since 2009. His streak of 67 straight starts is the longest on the team.

The addition of Whitworth gives the Bengals four players on the AFC's roster. Defensive tackle Geno Atkins was voted a starter for the first time, while receiver A.J. Green made it for the second straight season. Tight end Jermaine Gresham was a first alternate and also made the roster because of injury.
