NASHVILLE - Titans outside linebacker Harold Landry III is headed to the Pro Bowl.

Landry on Wednesday morning was named to the Pro Bowl as a replacement for Chargers edge rusher Joey Bosa, who is unable to participate due to injury.

Landry, initially named as one of the team's alternates, joins Titans safety Kevin Byard as a Pro Bowler. Byard was initially the team's lone Pro Bowl representative after the vote from players, coaches and fans.

This mark's Landry's first Pro Bowl appearance and caps a career-best season.

A second-round draft pick of the Titans in the 2018 NFL Draft, Landry finished the 2021 season with 12 sacks, which ranked 10th in the NFL and led the team. Landry also led the team with 14 tackles for loss and ranked second on the team with a career-best 49 quarterback pressures while finishing third on the team with 74 tackles.

Between weeks three and 10, Landry put together a stretch of eight consecutive games registering at least .5 sack in each contest. In the Divisional Playoff Game versus the Bengals, Landry registered 1.5 sacks and six tackles.

Over his four year career with the Titans, Landry has tallied 31 sacks.

When the Pro Bowl teams were announced in December, the Titans were also informed six other players (in no particular order) were chosen as alternates for the 2022 Pro Bowl - defensive lineman Jeffery Simmons, long snapper Morgan Cox, left tackle Taylor Lewan, guard Rodger Saffold, defensive lineman Denico Autry and linebacker/special teams ace Ola Adeniyi. To date, none of those six have been added as replacements.

The 2022 Pro Bowl will be played at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on Sunday, February 6, at 2 p.m. CST and will be televised on ESPN, ESPN Deportes and simulcast on ABC.
