Six Chiefs named to Pro Bowl

Six Kansas City Chiefs are being replaced on the Pro Bowl roster because, well, they have other things to do Sunday.

Quarterback Patrick Mahomes, tight end Travis Kelce, wide receiver Tyreek Hill, defensive end Frank Clark, defensive tackle Chris Jones and return specialist Mecole Hardman will be spending the weekend in preparation for Super Bowl 54. They will be replaced by Tennessee quarterback Ryan Tannehill, Indianapolis tight end Jack Doyle, Jacksonville wide receiver D.J. Chark, Jacksonville defensive end Josh Allen, Tennessee defensive tackle Jurrell Casey and Buffalo return specialist Andre Robers.

Defensive end Nick Bosa, fullback Kyle Juszczyk, tight end George Kittle and cornerback Richard Sherman of the San Francisco 49ers, the Chiefs’ opponent in the Super Bowl, won’t play Sunday for the same reason.

The Pro Bowl will be played at 2 p.m. Sunday at Camping World Stadium in Orlando.
