Colts’ Gardner Minshew named to 2024 Pro Bowl Games

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Gardner Minshew was named to the 2024 Pro Bowl Games as a replacement, the team announced Tuesday.

Considering Minshew wasn’t even voted as an alternate initially, this certainly comes as a surprise. It seems Minshew will be replacing Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson, who was not on the finalized Pro Bowl roster despite being voted in earlier in the season.

Minshew took over the starting role after rookie Anthony Richardson suffered a shoulder injury that required season-ending surgery in Week 5.

Over the course of the season, Minshew started 13 games, completing 62.2% of his passes for 3,305 yards, 15 touchdowns, nine interceptions and an 84.6 passer rating.

This is the first time in his career Minshew has been selected to the Pro Bowl, and he will join Houston TexansC.J. Stroud and Miami DolphinsTua Tagovailoa on the AFC squad.

Minshew also will join three teammates in Orlando. Left guard Quenton Nelson was the only Colts player voted as a starter in December while center Ryan Kelly and defensive tackle DeForest Buckner also were added to the roster as replacements Tuesday.
