The Chicago Bears can add two more names to the list of players headed to the Pro Bowl this weekend. 

The team announced that left tackle Charles Leno Jr. and Cody Whitehair have been named to the roster, replacing Saints tackle Terron Armstead and center Max Unger.

The addition brings the total number of Bears players named to the Pro Bowl to eight - tied for the third-most in franchise history and the most since the Bears had eight players named in 2007. 

On Monday, quarterback Mitch Trubisky was named to the Pro Bowl, replacing Rams quarterback Jared Goff as his team heads to the Super Bowl. 

Trubisky is the first Bears quarterback to be named to the Pro Bowl since Jim McMahon in 1986.

Also named were cornerback Kyle Fuller, defensive tackle Akiem Hicks, and safety Eddie Jackson. Running back Tarik Cohen is also heading to the game as a return specialist.

Khalil Mack was named to the roster but will not participate due to an injury, according to a press release issued by the New York Giants. He was replaced by Giants linebacker Olivier Vernon.

The Pro Bowl will take place on Jan. 27, and will be contested in Orlando.
