And then there were six, as in the number of Chiefs heading to the Pro Bowl.
The Chiefs announced on Tuesday night that linebacker Justin Houston will make the trip to Honolulu.
The second-year pro replaces Broncos linebacker Von Miller, who is injured.
Houston’s 10 sacks led the 2-14 Chiefs the past season and he finished eighth in the AFC in the sack department. His 66 total tackles (53 solo) ranked third on the Chiefs.
Kansas City will be represented by Houston, running back Jamaal Charles, safety Eric Berry, punter Dustin Colquitt and linebackers Tamba Hali and Derrick Johnson on the AFC Pro Bowl roster.
