Tom Brady has revealed that he will miss the Pro Bowl on Sunday through injury. 

The extent of Brady's injury is not known but he was noted to have a shoulder problem and flu-like symptoms in the week leading up to the AFC Championship game.

His New England Patriots teammate Aqib Talib will also miss the Pro Bowl with injury. Talib was forced to miss much of the game against the Denver Broncos last week with a knee injury.

Broncos receiver, Wes Welker collided with Talib during the second quarter and although it was later reported that Talib's knee had no structural damage, it appears he is just too banged up to play.

Talib will receive a $500,000 roster bonus for being voted to his first Pro-Bowl.

This year's Pro Bowl is un-conferenced and instead captains Deion Sanders and Jerry Rice will draft the two team's during a televised draft on NFL Network.

Three other New England Patriots will participate in the event.
