The 2022 Pro Bowl will be held during the off week before the Super Bowl on February 6th at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas at 3 p.m. ET on ESPN. And as usual, many of the players who were selected to play will bow out due to either playing in the Super Bowl, injury recovery, wanting to catch up on sleep, etc.

With so many players likely sitting this game out, there will be plenty of younger guys who will get to step into their spots. Below, we’ll keep a running tab on who has decided to forego the exhibition and players who will get pushed into starting roles.
