WR Smith, RB Gore added to NFC roster
Fitzgerald pulled out of the Jan. 31 game in Miami because of a knee injury. Jackson nursed a troublesome back for much of the season.
The Giants announced the change Wednesday, making Smith the team's first wideout to be selected for the Pro Bowl since Homer Jones in 1968.
Giants receiver David Tyree played in the 2006 Pro Bowl as a special teams player.
Smith, who entered last season with 65 career catches, led the NFC and shattered the Giants' single-season record with 107 -- 25 more than Amani Toomer's previous team record in 2002.
Smith's 1,220 receiving yards were the second-highest total in franchise history. Toomer had 1,343 in 2002.
Center Shaun O'Hara is the only other Giant on the NFC team.
Gore will join three teammates in the Jan. 31 game in Miami: tight end Vernon Davis, punter Andy Lee and linebacker Patrick Willis -- giving the team its most Pro Bowlers since sending six after the 2002 season.
Gore is headed to his second Pro Bowl after also going in 2006. He ran for 1,120 yards and matched a franchise record with 10 rushing touchdowns for the Niners (8-8) this season. He also caught three TD passes.
The procedure is not considered serious.
Including Gurode, Newman is the seventh Cowboy on the NFC roster for the Jan. 31 game in Miami.
