CINCINNATI — Cincinnati Bengals Ja'Marr Chase (wide receiver), Trey Hendrickson (defensive end) and Joe Mixon (running back) were selected to the AFC Pro Bowl team, according to a press release from the team.

Five Bengals were selected as alternates: Joe Burrow (quarterback), Clark Harris (long snapper), Sam Hubbard (defensive end), Larry Ogunjobi (defensive tackle), and cornerback Mike Hilton. Alternates will be added to the Pro Bowl game if other players can't play.

Chase is the sixth Bengals rookie to be voted onto the team, joining Andy Dalton (quarterback, 2011), A.J. Green (wide receiver, 2011), Cris Collinsworth (wide receiver, 1981), Isaac Curtis (wide receiver, 1973) and LeMar Parrish (corner back, 1970). Four Bengals rookies were selected to the American Football League All-Star game, the Pro Bowl game's predecessor prior to the merger of the AFL and NFL in 1970: Bill Begley (linebacker, 1969), Bob Johnson (1968, center), Paul Robinson (1968, running back) and Bob Trumpy (1968, tight end).

The Pro Bowl game is scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 6, at 3 p.m. and will air on WCPO.
