Six Colts players are alternates for the 2022 Pro Bowl: Special teamer Ashton Dulin, punt returner Nyheim Hines, inside linebacker Bobby Okereke, wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr., cornerback Xavier Rhodes and quarterback Carson Wentz.

Hines is averaging 7.4 yards per punt return and is one of the most dynamic returners in the NFL. In his career, Hines has two punt return touchdowns – which came in the same game in 2019 – and is averaging 12.2 yards on 61 returns.

Pittman leads the Colts in receiving yards (889) and receiving touchdowns (five). Only eight players have more receptions on third down than Pittman (23), and his 354 receiving yards on third down rank fifth.

Rhodes, a three-time Pro Bowler (2016, 2017, 2019), has one interception this season. He’s held opposing quarterbacks to just a 60.7 passer rating over his last four games while allowing only four first downs in that span.

The Colts announced seven players were named to the 2022 Pro Bowl on Wednesday: Defensive tackle DeForest Buckner, center Ryan Kelly, linebacker Darius Leonard, cornerback Kenny Moore II, left guard Quenton Nelson, long snapper Luke Rhodes and running back Jonathan Taylor.
