(CBS) – Another Chicago Bear is going to the 2014 Pro Bowl.

The Bears said they were notified Monday that guard Kyle Long will replace San Francisco’s Mike Iupati because of an injury.

A first-round draft pick, Long started all 16 games at right guard in his first season under Coach Marc Trestman.

Long is the first Bears offensive lineman to reach the Pro Bowl since G Ruben Brown and C Olin Kreutz were both selected following the 2006 season. He is the first Bears rookie to make the squad since Johnny Knox was selected as a kick returner following the 2009 season, the team said.

Long will join several teammates at the 2014 Pro Bowl: running back Matt Forté, wide receiver Alshon Jeffery, cornerback Tim Jennings and wide receiver Brandon Marshall.
