Falcons’ Jake Matthews added to Pro Bowl roster

Falcons left tackle Jake Matthews will play in the Pro Bowl on Sunday in Orlando. 

Matthews, who was a Pro Bowl alternate, will replace Washington tackle Trent Williams, who was unable to participate because of injury.

It will be Matthews’ first appearance in the Pro Bowl. 

Matthews, who was the sixth player selected in the 2014 draft, was one of the few bright spots along the offensive line last season.

He’ll join Falcons center Alex Mack and tight end Austin Hooper in the game. Wide receiver Julio Jones elected not to play because of a previous injury.
