Pro Bowl voting update: Eric Berry, Marcus Peters, Justin Houston, Travis Kelce featured for Chiefs

The 2016 Pro Bowl voting continues and the NFL has released an update of the top 10 overall vote-getters and the top 10 vote-getters at each position. The Kansas City Chiefs don't have any players in the overall top 10 but they do have a number of players represented in the top 10 at each position, including TE Travis Kelce, S Eric Berry and LB Justin Houston. Even Marcus Peters is in on the action at cornerback.

There is one more week of voting, which you can do here. Fan voting is one third of the voting process along with the votes from the players and coaches. The final results will be announced on December 22 on NFL Network. They're doing the Pro Bowl draft again this year so it won't be AFC vs. NFC.

Here are updates at notable positions.

Tight ends

Travis Kelce is the fifth leading vote-getter at tight end behind the leader Patriots' Rob Gronknowski, Panthers' Greg Olsen, Bengals' Tyler Eifert and the Browns' Gary Barnridge.

Center

No Chiefs listed even though Mitch Morse is having a really good year. He's one of the top rookie linemen. Former Chief Rodney Hudson is the seventh center among voting.

Fullback

Anthony Sherman is not listed at all, which is a good reminder that the fan voting isn't the best way to do this.

Inside linebacker

Derrick Johnson is NOT in the top 10. Which, again, is a sign that fans don't watch every player.

Outside linebacker

Justin Houston is the fourth leading vote-getter BEHIND the Broncos' DeMarcus Ware but AHEAD of Von Miller. OK, I can live with that.

Cornerback

Here's a nice surprise: Marcus Peters is the sixth leading vote-getter among cornerbacks. Ahead of him are the Panthers' Josh Norman, Jets' Darrelle Revis, Broncos' Aqib Talib, Cardinals' Patrick Peterson and Seahawks' Richard Sherman. Note that the Broncos' Chris Harris is ninth, so he is behind Peters.

Safety

Eric Berry is fifth in voting. He is behind the Raiders' Charles Woodson, Seahawks' Kam Chancellor, Colts' Mike Adams and Panthers' Roman Harper. Berry is having a terrific season considering he was going through chemo this offseason. I might even argue he is better now than he ever has been for the Chiefs. The Broncos' TJ Ward is 10th in this vote.

Special teams

Remember Kelcie McCray? The Chiefs traded him to Seattle where is now 10th among the special teams votes.

Punter

No Dustin Colquitt. Yep, the fans are wrong.
