Minneapolis, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Minnesota Vikings rookie offensive tackle Matt Kalil has been named to the 2013 NFC Pro Bowl roster, it was announced on Friday.

Kalil will replace Washington's Trent Williams, who will not play in the Pro Bowl because of injury.

This will be the first Pro Bowl experience for Kalil, who helped anchor an offensive line this season that brought running back Adrian Peterson within nine yards of breaking the all-time single-season rushing record.

The 2013 NFL Pro Bowl is scheduled for Jan. 27 in Honolulu.
