Four 49ers players had to be replaced on the NFC roster. Seattle Seahawks cornerback Shaquill Griffin takes Richard Sherman’s spot, and Minnesota Vikings fullback C.J. Ham will substitute for Kyle Juszczyk.

Atlanta Falcons tight end Austin Hooper will step in for San Francisco’s George Kittle. The identity of the replacement for 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa was not immediately announced.

The Pro Bowl takes place on Sunday in Orlando.
