Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck will be Team Sanders's starting quarterback at the Pro Bowl ahead of the Carolina Panthers' Cam Newton.

Andrew Luck has been named as the starting quarterback for Team Sanders in the Pro Bowl ahead of Cam Newton.

The Carolina Panthers quarterback finished ahead of Luck in the voting to make the annual game, but the Indianapolis Colts player was selected first in the Draft for this year's teams.

Colts head coach Chuck Pagano, who is also coaching Team Sanders, told the Charlotte Observer: "We just want to make sure everybody gets enough snaps and enough touches and enjoys the experience, enjoys the game. We've got three quarterbacks. We'll split it up evenly with reps."

However, Panthers head coach Ron Rivera, who is in charge of Team Rice, said: "We talked about it prior to this. [Pagano] asked and I asked and we both said, 'Hey, why don't we just start them according to votes so there's no hurt feelings?'"

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles completes the trio of passers for Team Sanders.
