The 2023 Pro Bowl is just around the corner. However, the NFL has opted to change the format of the All-Star football game this year. For the first time, the Pro Bowl will consist of skill competitions and non-contact flag football games, rather than an actual tackle football game.

However, as the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles will meet in the Super Bowl, players from both teams won't partake in the 2023 Pro Bowl.

Hence, the league has decided on a few replacements for players who won't be able to play in the All-Star event. Replacements have also been added for players who are injured or opting out of participating in the Pro Bowl.

Here are the alternate stars who will feature in the game instead of the original picks.
