NFL: Vikings LB Henderson added to Pro Bowl squad

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. – Minnesota Vikings linebacker E.J. Henderson is a late addition to the NFC Pro Bowl team, capping a remarkable comeback from a badly broken left leg.

The Vikings made the announcement Thursday. The all-star game is Sunday in Hawaii.

Henderson started all 16 games in 2010 and tied for the NFL lead among linebackers with three interceptions.

Henderson broke his leg during a December 2009 game and had a titanium rod put in. The injury required months of rehabilitation and put his career in jeopardy. But Henderson vowed to return.
