RB Jamaal Charles will be making his second Pro Bowl appearance, this one coming just a year after suffering an ACL injury that wiped out most of his 2011 season. Charles came back better than ever this year, and with one game left to play he leads the AFC in rushing with 1,456 yards.
LB Tamba Hali will be making his second straight Pro Bowl appearance and has been named a starter this year. He has recorded 9.0 sacks to go with 49 tackles, and 14 QB pressures.
LB Derrick Johnson will also be making his second straight Pro Bowl appearance and he leads the Chiefs in tackles for the third straight season with 119 heading into the final week of the season. Last year he set the franchise’s single-season tackle record with 179.
SS Eric Berry, like Charles, is also returning to the Pro Bowl after missing most of last season due to an ACL injury. This season he has recorded 80 tackles, 9.0 tackles for loss, one interception and 10 passes defensed. He has been named a Pro Bowl starter.
P Dustin Colquitt will be making his first Pro Bowl appearance. This year he set a single-season franchise record with 42 punts inside the 20-yard line heading into Week 17 and is now tied for second place in NFL history for most punts inside the 20-yard line in a single season. To go along with his 42 punts inside the 20 he has only seven touchbacks and has a season-long punt of 71 yards.
