Bills' DE Schobel Pro Bowl-bound again, replaces injured Taylor

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Bills defensive end Aaron Schobel is going to the Pro Bowl for a second straight year after he was added to the AFC roster Thursday in place of injured Dolphins end Jason Taylor.

Schobel had been selected as a Pro Bowl alternate last month despite a down season statistically. In 16 starts, he finished fourth on the team with 95 tackles and led the Bills with 6½ sacks -- a considerable drop after 14 sacks last season.

Taylor is unable to play after tearing his left plantar fascia -- an injury that brings pain to the bottom of the foot and heel -- against Baltimore on Dec. 16.

Schobel will be Buffalo's lone representative at the game, to be played Feb. 10 in Honolulu. Bills left tackle Jason Peters was selected as a starter but will miss the game with a groin injury.
