Adrian Peterson will sit out this year's Pro Bowl.

After the star running back missed the season's final game with nagging groin and foot injuries, Packers running back Eddie Lacy will take his place, according to the Packers' website.

Peterson rushed for 1,266 yards and averaged 4.5 yards per attempt. He scored 11 touchdowns in the 14 games he played. He was clearly hampered at times by injury when he was on the field, as he appeared to lack the trademark burst after he would make one defender miss.

Lacy, meanwhile, had a banner season for the Packers. He set franchise rookie records in rushing yards (1,178), rushing touchdowns (11), and tied the team's rookie record with four games of 100 or more rushing yards. 

He's the first Green Bay rookie selected to the Pro Bowl since John Brockington in 1971, according to the team's website.
