ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - Washington Redskins running back Alfred Morris will head to his first Pro Bowl, replacing Super Bowl-bound Marshawn Lynch of the Seattle Seahawks.

Morris got the spot in the Jan. 26 all-star game when Lynch and Seattle won the NFC championship game Sunday night.

Morris, a second-year player, ran for 1,275 yards on 276 carries this season for the Redskins, who went 3-13 and finished last in the NFC East.

He set a franchise record with 1,613 yards rushing as a rookie in 2012.

Morris joins left tackle Trent Williams as Redskins picked for the Pro Bowl this year.
