Ravens nose tackle Haloti Ngata will not play in the Pro Bowl because his wife is expecting their third child on Tuesday, the Ravens announced.

Ngata has been replaced in the Pro Bowl by Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman Jason Hatcher, according to the Cowboys.

Ngata, 29, recorded 52 tackles, 1.5 sacks and three pass deflections during his first season at nose tackle after being shifted over from defensive tackle.

He started 15 games, missing one game with a sprained knee.

Hatcher had a career-high 11 sacks and two forced fumbles last season.
