2018 Pro Bowl updated rosters: Here's who will be filling in for Patriots, Eagles

With the Pro Bowl less than one week away, the NFL has started the process of finalizing the AFC and NFC rosters for Sunday's game in Orlando, Florida. 

Although the roster for both teams was originally announced Dec. 20, the league has had to make some slight modifications over the past few weeks due to the fact that some players won't be able to participate. For instance, Tom Brady won't be able to play in the Pro Bowl because he has a slightly bigger game to worry about coming up on Feb. 4. 

With Brady out, Raiders quarterback Derek Carr has been called upon to take his place. Every Eagles player who was voted to the Pro Bowl also had to be replaced, and most of those alternates were named on Monday. 

After three seasons (2013-15) where the NFL went with an "unconferenced" format for the Pro Bowl, the league will be going back to the AFC-NFC format on Sunday for the second straight year. 

The game is scheduled to kickoff from Camping World Stadium in Orlando at 3 p.m. ET and will be televised by ESPN. 

You can see the entire roster for both the AFC and NFC below.
