Initial selections for the 44-man rosters have been made.
With the game a week before the Super Bowl, plenty of players from teams that make it to the NFL showpiece choose not to play in it. Some, like Tom Brady, will have reservations to Super Bowl LII.
Of the seven selections from the Los Angeles Rams, four filled the five special teams positions. Kicker Greg Zuerlein has since been replaced by Graham Gano because of injury.
A number of players have already pulled out due to injury.
DeAndre Hopkins, Travis Kelce, Joey Bosa, Jadeveon Clowney, Carson Wentz, Julio Jones, Trent Williams, Tyron Smith, Zack Martin, Aaron Donald, Luke Kuechly and Landon Collins were all supposed to be starters but have already pulled out.
Mike Tomlin and the staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers will lead the AFC team while Sean Payton and his New Orleans Saints staff will guide the NFC team.
The series is tied 22-22 after the AFC’ won in 2017, when the format returned to conference vs. conference. Pro Bowl teams were determined by player drafts from 2014 through 2016.
