Vikings’ Henderson added to Pro Bowl


COMEBACK • Minnesota Vikings linebacker E.J. Henderson is a late addition to the NFC Pro Bowl team, capping a remarkable comeback from a badly broken left leg.

The Vikings made the announceme­nt Thursday. The allstar game is Sunday in Hawaii.

Henderson started all 16 games in 2010 and tied for the NFL lead among linebacker­s with three intercepti­ons.

Henderson broke his leg during a December 2009 game and had a titanium rod put in. The injury required months of rehabilita­tion and put his career in jeopardy. But Henderson vowed to return.

He did so well that the Vikings medical staffers have presented Henderson’s case to colleagues as a model for treatment.
