The NFL released its Pro Bowl rosters Tuesday night and three former Michigan players will be represented.

Former Michigan quarterback Tom Brady was named the starting quarterback for the AFC. Tackle Jake Long will also represent the AFC and former Michigan Heisman Trophy winner Charles Woodson was named a starting cornerback for the NFC.

It is possible, though, that none of the three end up playing in the game. The Pro Bowl is held the weekend before the Super Bowl on Jan. 29 in Honolulu. If the Patriots or Packers make the Super Bowl, they won't play in the Pro Bowl.

Also, Long suffered a right bicep injury last weekend in a loss to the Patriots so he might not be available for the game.
