The honors keep coming in for Nevada Wolf Pack alum Joel Bitonio.

One week after being named to the AP All-Pro second team, the Cleveland Browns offensive guard was named to the AFC Pro Bowl roster. Bitonio takes the spot of Pittsburgh's David DeCastro, who is injured.

The fifth-year NFL player, who played for Nevada from 2010-13, is the seventh Wolf Pack alum to make a Pro Bowl roster. He's the first since Brock Marion in 2003.

Charles Mann made a Nevada record four Pro Bowls; Marion made three; and Marion Motley, Doug Betters, Victor Carroll and Horace Gillom made one each.

The Pro Bowl will be held Jan. 27 at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Fla.
