With Panthers in, Taylor, Wood get Pro Bowl nods

Since the end of the regular season, Buffalo Bills center Eric Wood has been an avid Carolina Panthers fan.

As an alternate for the Pro Bowl, Wood needed Ryan Kalil and the cats to make it to the big game in order to have a shot at a roster spot for the Jan. 31 game.

Now, Wood and teammate Tyrod Taylor are headed to Hawaii.

"I’ve been rooting pretty hard for Carolina throughout the playoffs," Wood said via "So when they won I knew I was in and someone from the league contacted me about 11:30 last night.

"I'm on the way back from the University of Louisville now from a workout; I was trying to do a little crash course to get back in shape and get ready to play a game this weekend."
