ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. » Buffalo Bills running back C.J. Spiller and defensive tackle Kyle Williams have been added to the roster for Sunday’s AFC Pro Bowl roster, replacing Super Bowl-bound Baltimore Ravens players Ray Rice and Haloti Ngata.

Spiller ran for a career-best 1,244 yards on 207 carries and had six touchdowns. The third-year player’s 6.0-yard per carry average tied for first in the NFL.

Williams had five sacks and 46 tackles. The seven-year pro will be making his second Pro Bowl appearance.

It was announced earlier that Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh has been added to the NFC Pro Bowl team, replacing San Francisco’s Justin Smith.

The 49ers advanced to the Super Bowl on Sunday with a win over Atlanta.

Suh was initially selected as an alternate. He becomes the third Detroit player picked for the Pro Bowl, the team’s most since also having three selected to the 2005 game. Suh, wide receiver Calvin Johnson and long snapper Don Muhlbach are on this year’s team. Johnson was selected as a starter but is not expected to play.

Suh is the first Lion to earn a Pro Bowl trip in two of his first three seasons since Barry Sanders, who earned Pro Bowl nods in all 10 of his NFL seasons.
