ALAMEDA -- Fullback Marcel Reece was named to the Pro Bowl on Friday, the only Raiders player so honored.

Reece, chosen for the Pro Bowl for the second consecutive season, is the Raiders' fourth-leading rusher with 218 yards on 46 carries and their fifth-leading receiver with 31 receptions for 320 yards. He has two touchdown rushing and two receiving.

Players are selected by a vote of fans, players and coaches. The game will be played Jan. 27 in Honolulu.

"First off, it's an honor to be recognized amongst the elite players in the NFL," Reece said in a prepared statement. "I just want to say thank you to my family and my teammates for allowing to be myself and play at a high level, and also say thank you, last but not least, to the Raider Nation for showing their continuous support throughout the season and my career."

Although his numbers are down from a year ago, when Reece had 59 carries for 271 yards and 52 receptions for 497 yards, the fifth-year player out of Washington has picked up the pace lately.

With the Raiders missing Darren McFadden and Rashad Jennings against the New York Jets, Reece rushed for a career-high 123 yards on 19 carries, including a 63-yard scoring run, and had two catches for 38 yards.

Reece originally was a Pro Bowl alternate last season, but got to play because Ravens fullback Vonta Leach was in the Super Bowl.

In September, the Raiders signed Reece to a three-year contract extension worth as much as $13 million with $7.2 million guaranteed.
