The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS -

The NFL an­nounced Tues­day that four Wash­ing­ton Redskins will par­tic­i­pate in the 2017 Pro Bowl.

Line­backer Ryan Ker­ri­gan, tight end Jor­dan Reed, left tackle Trent Wil­liams and of­fen­sive guard Bran­don Scherff will be the Redskins’ rep­re­sen­ta­tives. Corner­back Josh Nor­man, quar­ter­back Kirk Cousins and wide re­ceiver/kick re­turner Jami­son Crow­der will serve as al­ter­nates. Ker­ri­gan will par­tic­i­pate in his sec­ond ca­reer Pro Bowl. This sea­son, Ker­ri­gan has 11 sacks, good for the fifth-most in the NFL. Wil­liams has been se­lected for the fifth straight sea­son. Wil­liams joins safety Ken Hous­ton and line­backer Chris Han­burger as the only play­ers in Redskins his­tory to be se­lected to five straight Pro Bowls. Scherff, in his first NFL sea­son, joins Wil­liams. Since he was drafted with the fifth over­all pick in 2015, Scherff has started all 30 reg­u­lar sea­son games. This is the first time Wash­ing­ton has sent two of­fen­sive line­men to the same Pro Bowl since 1991, when tackle Jim Lachey and guard Mark Sch­lereth were ros­tered.

Reed is the first Redskins tight end se­lected to the Pro Bowl since Chris Coo­ley in 2008.
