NFL.com on Thursday released updated numbers for Pro Bowl voting, and fullback Darrel Young and punter Tress Way rank third at the respective positions, while linebacker Ryan Kerrigan ranks 10th.
While the season hasn’t gone as expected for the Redskins, all three have experience individual success that should be noted.

Young currently trails Green Bay Packer John Kuhn and Baltimore Raven Kyle Juszczyk in voting, but not in total touchdowns.
Scoring the Redskins’ first touchdown in the first three games of the season (Texans, Jaguars and Eagles) Young has three touchdowns while Kuhn and Juszczyk each have just one.
Did you know — out of the top-10 outside linebackers in Pro Bowl voting, Kerrigan ranks No. 1 in forced fumbles.
He’s also fourth in tackles (54) and fifth in sacks (11.5).
Seven different outside linebackers, including Brian Orakpo, made last year’s Pro Bowl.
Way, meanwhile, is behind Raven Sam Koch and Cleveland Brown Spencer Lanning.
The Oklahoma product, however, is leading the NFL in average yards per punt (48.1) and recorded the season long of 77 yards.
On a fun side-note, Way told PressboxDC.com that his wife spends an hour each day voting for him.
As you prepare to make your submissions for the Pro Bowl, perhaps for an hour as well, keep these things in mind about all three Redskins.
