Trent Williams representing Redskins in 2016 Pro Bowl

Trent Williams is heading back to the Pro Bowl. For now, the Redskins' left tackle won't have teammates joining him.

If only one member of the Washington Redskins could receive a Pro Bowl slot, Trent Williams is the right call. 

That's also how it went down though without any roster caveats. The left tackle was honored for his latest stellar season with his fourth straight Pro Bowl selection as the NFL announced selections Tuesday evening.

Tight end Jordan Reed and linebacker Ryan Kerrigan were named alternates. 

The Pro Bowl takes place Jan 31 at 8PM ET on ESPN after the players are drafted to teams helmed by Hall of Famers Jerry Rice and Michael Irvin on Jan 27. 

Williams allowed a sack in Sunday's 35-25 win over the Buffalo Bills as the Redskins took sole possession of first place in the NFC East. The sack is notable because according to the coaches film, it was the first he allowed this season. No doubt the 27-year-old is one of the top tackles in the league. Morre importantly for the Redskins, Kirk Cousins' blindside protector is the most indespensible player on the team.

Reed has 74 receptions for 778 yards and nine touchdowns. Greg Olsen, Travis Kelce, Rob Gronkowski and Tyler Eifert were the four tight ends selected. 

Kerrigan leads Washington with 8.5 sacks.

Injured players or those on teams in the Super Bowl will be replaced, so it's possible Reed, Kerrigan and other Redskins could end up in Hawaii.
