INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - Two Indianapolis Colts players are headed to Orlando for the Pro Bowl.

Darius Leonard and Quenton Nelson were selected for the 2020 Pro Bowl January 26. It is the first Pro Bowl selection for Leonard and the second for Nelson in as many years.

The pair of second-year players were named First Team All-Pro last year.

Leonard has started 11 games, recording 104 tackles, five sacks and two forced fumbles. He has intercepted four passes in the team's first 14 games. He had two interceptions in the Week 14 game at Tampa Bay, including an 80-yard return for his first career touchdown.

Nelson has started all 14 games for the Colts this season after starting all 16 games in 2018. He is the fifth Colts player in team history to be named to the Pro Bowl in his first two seasons, joining Andrew Luck, Edgerrin James, Marshall Faulk and Alan Ameche.
