If the Green Bay Packers clinch their fifth consecutive playoff appearance Sunday, they値l have done it without a single Pro Bowler.

At least for now.

The Packers were one of five teams shut out from the Pro Bowl on Friday. The others were the N.Y. Jets, N.Y. Giants, Atlanta and Jacksonville. It was Green Bay痴 first snub since 2005 when it finished 4-12.

Rookie running back Eddie Lacy was the closest the Packers came to a selection. He was named a first alternate after rushing for 1,112 yards and 10 touchdowns on 263 carries in 14 games.

The Packers had seven other alternates: fullback John Kuhn, quarterback Aaron Rodgers, guard Josh Sitton, linebacker Clay Matthews, wide receiver Jordy Nelson, and cornerbacks Sam Shields and Tramon Williams. Williams and Sitton have $250,000 bonuses tied to a potential Pro Bowl selection.
