The last Bears rookie to make the Pro Bowl was return specialist Devin Hester after the 2006 season.
Knox caught 45 passes for 527 yards and five touchdowns, but he was more dangerous returning kickoffs. He racked up 927 yards, including a 102-yard score versus Detroit on Oct. 4.
Knox, a fifth round draft choice out of Abilene Christian, originally was voted as a second alternate to the Pro Bowl.
Chicago Bears rookie Johnny Knox added to NFC Pro Bowl roster.
