Packers Fullback Named to Pro Bowl Team
Green Bay Packers fullback John Kuhn was named to the Pro Bowl on Tuesday by the National Football League. He joins Packers linebacker Clay Matthews, quarterback Aaron Rodgers and guard Josh Sitton on the Pro Bowl roster.
Kuhn was named to his third career Pro Bowl (2011, 2014). His three selections are tied with John Brockington (1971-73) and Cecil Isbell (1938, 1941-42) for the third most by a Packers running back/fullback, trailing only FB Jim Taylor (five, 1960-64) and RB Ahman Green (four, 2001-04). Kuhn is the first Green Bay FB to be named to the Pro Bowl in back-to-back seasons since Taylor went to five straight. He has helped a Green Bay rushing attack that ranks 10th in the NFL this season (118.3 yards per game). Kuhn has appeared in every game this year. It is the ninth consecutive season he has played in at least 14 games.
