If you missed it back in December, the National Football League announced that it's bringing a game of dodgeball to the Pro Bowl Skills Challenge, which takes place this Thursday. Now we know who's going to be whipping rubbery red balls at each other.

According to 247 Sports, the AFC team includes Von Miller and Chris Harris of the Broncos, Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton, Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith, Bengals defensive lineman Geno Atkins and Browns left tackle Joe Thomas.

Dodging, dipping, diving, ducking and dodging for the NFC team includes running back Ezekiel Elliott and Cowboys teammate Dak Prescott, Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr., Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis, Buccaneers defensive lineman Gerald McCoy and Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson.

They're actually calling it "Epic Pro Bowl Dodgeball."

You can watch it Thursday at 6 p.m. on ESPN.
