Brees Thomas will not play in Pro Bowl

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott (4) presents wide receiver Amari Cooper (19) with the FOX Thanksgiving football after a Thanksgiving Day NFL football game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Washington Redskins on Thursday, November 22, 2018 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Safety Landon Collins was also voted into the Pro Bowl, but for the second consecutive year, he will miss the game due to injury. With the addition of Cooper and Prescott the Cowboys will again have six players playing in this years Pro Bowl. All three QBs are alternates for the initial three quarterbacks selected: Brees, Aaron Rodgers (injured) and Jared Goff (Super Bowl).

Cooper, acquired from the Oakland Raiders in October, is in the Pro Bowl for the third time. Cooper tallied 1,005 receiving yards and seven touchdowns on the season.

Bolt said that his "sports life is over", adding that he's focusing on trying to become a business man following his athletic career.

Thomas, meanwhile, will be going to his first ever Pro Bowl after a season in which he recorded 59 tackles (41 solo), one stuff, one sack, six passes defensed and two interceptions.

With Prescott on the field and the Cowboys coaching staff running things, it will be a good time to pay close attention to see who is calling the offensive plays for the Cowboys since they are still looking for their next offensive coordinator. Both Cooper and Prescott will now join four others: DeMarcus Lawrence, Ezekiel Elliott, Byron Jones and Leighton Vander Esch, who was also an injury replacement.
