DETROIT (AP) — Record-setting wide receiver Calvin Johnson is Detroit’s only representative on the Pro Bowl roster, although quarterback Matthew Stafford and defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh were announced as alternates Wednesday.

Johnson broke Jerry Rice’s single-season yards receiving record and has 1,892 with a game left. He’s been one of few bright spots for the Lions, who are 4-11 heading into Sunday’s finale against Chicago.

Stafford has thrown for 4,695 yards, but with only 17 touchdowns and 16 interceptions. Suh has seven sacks.
