This is the first Pro Bowl of Ivory's career. It comes after his first 1,000 yard season. His 1,070 yards were fifth best in the league.
Ivory also had 30 catches, an impressive figure considering he had 23 catches in his first five NFL seasons combined. It is a credit to Chris that he improved this part of his game. He might never be a great receiving weapon. You will never look to isolate him against linebackers. Most of his receiving production was on screens. Getting to the point where he's a functional part of the passing game helped him be more productive, though.
