Johnny Knox will participate in next Sunday's Pro Bowl in Miami, the league confirmed today.
The rookie was selected as the first alternate kick returner and was added to the roster when the Vikings Percy Harvin pulled out with an injury.
Knox returned 32 kickoffs for 927 yards in 2009 and his 29.0 average was second best in the league. His 102-yard return for a touchdown against Detroit in Week 4 was the second longest in team history.
The last Bears' rookie named to the Pro Bowl was Devin Hester in 2006.
