The Pro Bowl is back this season after a one-year hiatus in 2021 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
While many of the NFL’s biggest stars will be on full display this weekend, several usually opt out of the all-star event because of lingering injuries, because they’re playing in the Super Bowl or for various other reasons. This season is no different and there have already been several players who have decided to decline the invite to the game, which will be held in Las Vegas at 3 p.m. EST on Sunday.
Here’s a running list of all players who are replacing those who opt out of the game this season. It will be updated as more players are added to the 2022 Pro Bowl rosters.
