Henderson never suited up, but he still received the $45,000 bounty issued to players on the winning team -- along with a free trip to Hawaii.
"It turned out that Vilma was able to play, so E.J. remained in Hawaii as part of the 2011 Pro Bowl roster," NFL spokesman Jon Zimmer told the newspaper. "He was available for activation as an emergency replacement player at the LB position for the NFC yesterday if the need arose (it did not)."
Henderson isn't a slacker, though. He worked his way back from a broken femur in December 2009 to record 106 tackles, one forced fumble and three interceptions this season.
