Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy won’t be coaching in this weekends Pro Bowl game in Hawaii because of a stomach illness.
The Packers were the highest seed eliminated in the NFC divisional playoff round, which made McCarthy and his staff the conference’s representative at the Pro Bowl.
According to a team statement, doctors have advised McCarthy not to travel at this time.
That means Associate head coach Winston Moss will handle McCarthy’s head-coaching responsibilities for the rest of the week.
Even though Aaron Rodgers pulled out of the game with an undisclosed injury, the Packers still have Josh Sitton, Clay Matthews, Julius Peppers and John Kuhn playing in the game.
The Pro Bowl kicks off at 6 p.m. Sunday at Aloha Stadium in Hawaii.
