The veteran linebacker will replace Carolina’s Luke Kuechly

Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson has been named to the 2016 NFL Pro Bowl after the Carolina Panthers advanced to the Super Bowl. Johnson will replace Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly.

After suffering a season-ending ruptured Achilles injury in Week 1 of 2014, Johnson rebounded in 2015 to lead the Chiefs with 116 tackles (95 solo) and became the Chiefs all-time leading tackler in Week 3. He also had 4.0 sacks and 2 forced fumbles.

Johnson, who is joined in Hawaii by teammates Eric Berry, Travis Kelce, Tamba Hali, Justin Houston and Marcus Peters, will travel to the fourth Pro Bowl of his career.
