Harris bows out of Pro Bowl

Tommie Harris took about a month to make it official as he bowed out of the Pro Bowl on Thursday because of his left knee that was troublesome almost all season.

He will be replaced on he NFC roster by Arizonas Darnell Dockett, who had a career year for the Cardinals with 75 tackles and nine sacks.

Harris was battling his balky hamstring when Dallas Cowboys right tackle Marc Colombo leg whipped him in the Sept. 23 meeting at Soldier Field, damaging Harris knee. He soldiered on, but revealed in November that he would require arthroscopic surgery when the season ended.

Harris finished with a career-high eight sacks.

Coincidentally, Harris’ decision helps out his agent Drew Rosenhaus. Dockett is also represented by the Miami-based power broker.
