Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston was chosen to the AFC Pro Bowl roster Tuesday as a replacement for injured Denver linebacker Von Miller.

Houston becomes the Chiefs’ sixth Pro Bowler this season, the most for the franchise since 2005. He joins safety Eric Berry, running back Jamaal Charles, punter Dustin Colquitt and fellow linebackers Tamba Hali and Derrick Johnson. The Pro Bowl, played in Honolulu, kicks off at 6 p.m. Sunday on CBS.

In his second NFL season, Houston led the Chiefs with 10 sacks and finished third on the team with 66 tackles. He made 51/2 sacks his rookie year after being chosen in the third round of the 2011 NFL Draft.
