HOUSTON – Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller has been named to the 2019 Pro Bowl to replace Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay, who is unable to participate due to injury, the NFL announced today. Miller, who was originally named an alternate, joins teammates OLB Jadeveon Clowney, WR DeAndre Hopkins, ILB Benardrick McKinney and DE J.J. Watt. The Pro Bowl will be played at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Fla. on January 27, 2019. This marks the 15th-consecutive season that the Texans have had at least one player elected to the Pro Bowl and the five selections are the most for Houston since 2012.

Miller ran for 973 yards on 210 carries (4.6 avg.) and caught 25 passes for 163 yards (6.5 avg.) in 14 games this season. He scored five rushing touchdowns and one receiving touchdown while compiling 1,136 total scrimmage yards. Miller rushed for 100-or-more yards in four games in 2018, which ties his single-season career high for most games with 100-or-more rushing yards (four in 2016). Since 2014, Miller has rushed for 4,905 yards, which is the second-most in the NFL during that span behind Bills RB LeSean McCoy. Additionally, Miller and Steelers WR Antonio Brown are the only NFL players with 1,000 scrimmage yards and five touchdowns in in each of past five seasons (2014-18). In Week 12 vs. Tennessee, Miller ran for 162 rushing yards on 12 carries (13.5 avg.) and scored on a 97-yard run, which marked the longest run in franchise history.
