Buffalo Bills running back C.J. Spiller and defensive tackle Kyle Williams were added to the AFC Pro Bowl roster, the NFL announced Monday. Spiller ran for a career-best 1,244 yards on 207 carries with six touchdowns in 2012. He tied for the NFL lead among running backs with 6.0 yards per carry. He had at least 100 yards from scrimmage in 11 games in 2012. That was the best for a Bill since Thurman Thomas did it in 13 games in 1993. Spiller replaces Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice. Williams had 5.0 sacks and 46 tackles (27 solo) in 2012. "It's always an honor to represent your team and the city of Buffalo in the Pro Bowl," Williams said in a statement. "To be recognized by the fans, your peers and the coaches you play against means a lot. Our goal next year, as it is every season, is to still be competing at this time. It would be great for us, the fans and the city of Buffalo if we'd be able to watch the Pro Bowl next year as we're continuing our journey for a Super Bowl." Williams replaces Baltimore Ravens defensive tackle Haloti Ngata. The Pro Bowl is Sunday. The Ravens are preparing to play the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl on Feb. 3.
