RENTON, Wash. (AP) -- Seattle Seahawks fullback Michael Robinson is headed to Hawaii after being added to the NFC roster for the Pro Bowl.

Robinson was added on Thursday after Green Bay fullback John Kuhn pulled out due to injury. Robinson was the first alternate and this will be his first Pro Bowl appearance.

Robinson helped running back Marshawn Lynch become Seattle's first 1,000-yard back since 2005. Lynch scored a touchdown in 11 straight games and Seattle was one of the top running teams in the NFL the second half of the season.

Robinson also had a touchdown receiving and he returned a blocked punt for a touchdown this season.

Robinson joins safety Earl Thomas as Seattle's representatives at the Pro Bowl.
