Texans left tackle
No Texans made the first team in All-Pro voting, which is done by a national panel of 50 media members.
It's the first All-Pro recognition for Joseph, who also made the Pro Bowl this season, and Brown. Foster, the Texans' other 2011 Pro Bowler, was first-team All-Pro in 2010. Cushing earned second-team honors as a rookie in 2009.
Joseph missed out on the first team by one vote. He had 18 to Green Bay cornerback Charles Woodson’s 19. Darrelle Revis of the New York Jets led the way at cornerback with 48 votes.
Brown finished third among tackles with 11 votes, trailing Philadelphia’s Jason Peters (27) and Cleveland’s Joe Thomas (19).
Cushing got 13 votes, fourth among inside linebackers. San Francisco’s Patrick Willis (32) and NaVorro Bowman (16) both earned first-team honors, followed by Kansas City’s Derrick Johnson (16).
Foster was a distant fourth among running backs with three votes, behind Jacksonville’s Maurice Jones-Drew (40), Philadelphia’s LeSean McCoy (29) and Baltimore’s Ray Rice (24).
