Eighth Colts player added to Pro Bowl roster

INDIANAPOLIS (Jan. 26, 2006) -- Colts tackle Tarik Glenn is officially in the Pro Bowl.

Glenn was originally listed on the AFC roster in December, but he was dropped within hours after being notified of his selection because of what the NFL called a computer error in the tabulation of votes.

Instead, he was made an alternate for the Feb. 12 game in Honolulu. He was added to the squad Jan. 26, however, because of an injury to Kansas City tackle William Roaf.

It will be the second straight Pro Bowl appearance for the 6-foot-5, 332-pound Glenn, who has started all 138 games of his nine-year career.

He is the eighth Colts players in the game. The other seven, all of whom were selected as starters, are quarterback Peyton Manning, running back Edgerrin James, receiver Marvin Harrison, center Jeff Saturday, defensive end Dwight Freeney, linebacker Cato June and defensive back Bob Sanders.

The eight Pro Bowl players also tie a franchise record set in 1958 and matched in 1964 and 1971, when the Colts played in Baltimore.
