The Packers Play In The 2012 Pro Bowl Tonight

Pro Bowl 2012: Ben Roethlisberger, Aaron Rodgers First In Line - Have you got 2012 Pro Bowl fever yet? The game's on NBC tonight at 6pm CST.

It's been an "intense" week of practice:

"The practices have been great," Cardinals rookie cornerback Patrick Peterson said. "It's definitely the most laid-back practices I've ever been involved in."

The brief practices have been as grueling and intense as a poolside, Hawaiian lomilomi massage. The players, some wearing sunglasses, often sweat more after practice -- signing autographs for the fans.

"If you break a sweat during practice in Hawaii, there's a rule you've got to be sent home by the NFL," said Packers cornerback Charles Woodson, who is making his eighth Pro Bowl in his 14th season.

The only thing that's been surprising is that there are few players who are absent due to an injury. FB John Kuhn's legitimately out with a sprained MCL, but usually there's a veteran or two who stay away with a injury that doesn't seem believable. That doesn't seem to be the case this year.
