Pat McAfee Injury: Punter Announces Plans for Knee Surgery, Will Skip Pro Bowl

January 14, 2017   ·     ·   Jump to comments

Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee announced Saturday he will undergo knee surgery and skip the upcoming Pro Bowl in Orlando, Florida.
McAfee revealed the news on Twitter:
The 29-year-old veteran is a two-time Pro Bowler and set a career high with an average of 49.3 yards per punt in 2016.
McAfee also registered a net average of 42.7 yards and had 19 punts downed inside the opposition's 20-yard line.
Per the Oakland Raiders' official website, All-Pro second-team selection Marquette King was named a Pro Bowl alternate for the AFC, which means he is in line to assume McAfee's spot.
McAfee didn't reveal the severity of his injury or a potential timetable for his return to action, although he has the entire offseason to mend, as Indianapolis failed to qualify for the playoffs.
