GREEN BAY -- Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy will not attend this week's NFL Pro Bowl in Hawaii due to a stomach illness, the Packers said Wednesday.

Doctors have advised McCarthy not to travel at this time, according to the team. 

McCarthy was scheduled to coach the NFC side of the Pro Bowl, but Associate Head Coach/Linebackers Coach Winston Mass will now replace him.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers announced a week ago that he too would miss the Pro Bowl due to an undisclosed injury.

Clay Matthews, Josh Sitton, John Kuhn, and Julius Peppers are all still scheduled to attend.
