Pro Bowl: Justin Houston in, Von Miller out
By Bill Williamson
There has been an AFC West switch-out at linebacker for the Pro Bowl.
Kansas City's Justin Houston will replace Denver’s Von Miller, who will miss the game with a minor injury. It will not have an effect on his 2013 season.
Houston was a third-round pick in 2011 and has been an outstanding pass-rusher, totaling 10 sacks in 2012. He joins fellow Chiefs linebacker Tamba Hali and Derrick Johnson on the roster for Sunday's Pro Bowl. The Chiefs, who fired general manager Scott Pioli and coach Romeo Crennel after their 2-14 season, have six players in the Pro Bowl.
