Foster: Don't expect 100 percent play at Pro Bowl

Houston running back Arian Foster says players are going to step up at the Pro Bowl this year, but don’t expect 100 percent effort.

Foster said Friday after practicing with his AFC teammates that it’s unrealistic to expect full effort from the NFL’s top athletes when they’re limited in the plays they’re able to run.

Effort has emerged as the top theme for this year’s Pro Bowl as NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has made it clear the all-star game won’t be played going forward if it’s second-rate football.

Denver quarterback Peyton Manning says players have to play better because it would be a shame for the game to be canceled. 

Manning says the NFL will lose the value of players interacting if the Pro Bowl goes away.
