Redskins outside linebacker Lorenzo Alexander had a team-high five tackles Sunday night to help lead the NFC’s stout (cough, cough) defensive effort in a 62-35 victory in the Pro Bowl in Honolulu.
Inside linebacker London Fletcher had three defensive tackles and one on special teams. That’s one more special teams tackle than Alexander, the NFC’s special teams representative, had.
Fletcher started the game after making the roster as a first alternate. He replaced ineligible San Francisco linebacker Patrick Willis.
Outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan, who made the game as an alternate, was credited with a solo tackle and an assist. The NFC held the AFC to its lowest point total in four years.
Left tackle Trent Williams did not play in the game because he was assaulted and injured in a nightclub fracas on Thursday night. TMZ.com published on Monday morning a picture of Williams with a bandage on his head. Note the CAPS LOCK font size increase for “BANDAGED UP.” Classic.
Quarterback Robert Griffin III also was nominated to the game, but he did not play because he is rehabilitating his surgically repaired right knee in Florida.
Notice in the picture of the Redskins players how the Indian head logo is facing the left instead of the right. Weird.
