Desmond King Jerseys Stitched , Fla. (AP) — Mike and Maurkice Pouncey were among the first players off the AFC Pro Bowl practice field Thursday.They were trying to hustle to the locker room to shower, change and get on the road.They had people waiting. More than 50 of them, actually.“This is our family vacation,” Los Angeles Chargers center Mike Pouncey said.The tattooed twins grew up about 30 miles west of Disney World, won a national championship two hours up the road at Florida and have made a combined 11 Pro Bowls in 15 seasons. But they’ve haven’t practiced or played on the same field so close to home since their high school days in Lakeland, Florida.So they decided to go all out for friends and relatives at the Pro Bowl. They rented a spacious, nine-bedroom house for the week, secured two luxury suites for the NFL’s annual all-star game Sunday and doled out dozens of more tickets.“It means so much,” Pittsburgh Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey said. “It’s bigger than our family. It’s a community in Florida here that’s supported us for so long. We couldn’t be happier to have them out here and soaking it all in.”While the Pounceys appear to have the largest entourage on hand, they are hardly alone in treating the Pro Bowl as a family affair. Warm weather Youth Casey Hayward Jerseys , VIP access to theme parks and a lax practice environment create an ideal vacation spot for those closest to the players.Retiring Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams, who said he has no second thoughts about giving up the game after 13 seasons, brought his mom, his mother-in-law, his wife, their five kids, plus a niece and a nephew to town.“The opportunity to come out and kind of a last hooray so to speak with the game and being able to share the week with my family and go to Disney, do the whole thing, bring them to practice. It’s kind of a cherry on top. It’s a great way to go out.”Williams rented “the whole corner of the 15th floor at the hotel” for his group. They arrived a day early to make the first of two trips to Disney World. They also plan to visit Universal Studios.“It’s a big week,” Williams said. “Eighty degrees in January is hard to beat.”Tennessee Titans punter Brett Kern made his first Pro Bowl last year and watched veteran quarterback Drew Brees bring his three young boys to every event Casey Hayward Jerseys Stitched , including practice.“I saw Drew’s kids in our locker room asking Antonio Brown for jerseys and asking players for autographs, and the guys were open to it,” Kern said. “I figured if I ever get back, I’m going to bring my son around to everything, bus rides, all we do as a team.”Kern made it back, brought his wife and three kids and now has his 9-year-old son Bryce in tow for the week. Bryce brought about 50 player cards to get signed, but he spent Thursday’s practice playing football with Williams’ three sons and a few others, and then he worked as a team reporter for the Titans.The Pounceys have even more on their agenda.They have the usual Disney trips on tap along with nightly dance parties starring all the youngsters in the rental home.“We know after this is all over, the vacation is done and it’s back to work Youth Brandon Mebane Jerseys ,” Maurkice Pouncey said.The brothers flipped a coin to decide who would take the first snap in practice Wednesday and they already have talked to coaches about getting to play side by side in the game. They got to do that during the 2015 Pro Bowl in Glendale, Arizona. It was the first time they shared a field since 2009.But this would be different because so many friends and family members will be on hand.“It’s awesome,” Mike Pouncey said. “This brings back so many great memories. Our Florida days were some of the best times of our lives. We had one of the greatest college football teams ever. To be back out here playing again on the same football field is moments we won’t forget.”They are considering a little trickery, too.They talked about possibly swapping helmets during the game. The identical twins both wear No. 53 and expect to have just their last name on the backs of their jerseys. So would anyone — even all those closest to them — even notice a quick switch-a-roo?“Maybe I’ll be a Charger for a play,” Maurkice Pouncey said. “You never know.” COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — Joey Bosa could possibly make his season debut Sunday.The Los Angeles Chargers defensive end, who has been out with a foot injury, practiced Wednesday. Coach Anthony Lynn said he was excited to see Bosa practicing with his teammates for the first time since Sept. 5.Bosa did individual drills during the portion of practice open to reporters and was listed as limited on the team’s practice report. Lynn has continued to stress caution about when Bosa could return, but acknowledged he could play against Denver depending on how well the third-year lineman does in individual and team drills.“He hasn’t played football in 13-14 weeks, whatever it is. So we have to be careful putting him back in Brandon Mebane Jerseys Stitched ,” Lynn said.Bosa first injured his foot during training camp, which caused him to miss the preseason. He reinjured it during practice leading up to the opener against Kansas City. Bosa said two weeks ago that he should not have rushed in trying to get back for the first week.Isaac Rochell, who started three games at defensive end, said Bosa has been a big presence in team meetings even though he hasn’t played.“He’s super engaged. He’s been locked in at all times. He has been going through scouting reports and the game plan,” Rochell said.The Chargers are 7-2 and have won six straight despite Bosa’s absence. Los Angeles’ pass rush struggled early in the season, but has 15 sacks in the past four games. Bosa has 23 sacks in two seasons, including an NFL-record 19 in his first 20 games.Bosa’s return this week could help bolster a unit that is down two starters at linebacker after Denzel Perryman was placed on injured reserve due to a knee injury. Denver is 3-6 but is ranked 11th in the league in offense.“It has been tough seeing him go through the rehab and everything,” Rochell said about Bosa. “With him coming back, I think it will add a lot. We’re excited.”
