Who are the NFL inactives in Week 18? Which players will teams be without, whether due to injury or a coach's decision?

The Week 18 NFL inactives list will feature some intriguing names on Sunday as we deal with injuries, COVID, and teams considering resting players. Let’s look at which players will not be available for their team during Week 18 of the 2021 NFL season.

NFL Inactives in Week 18

Each NFL team can only dress 48 players for an individual game. Yet, they can have up to 55 players available to them in any given week. Teams have a 53-man roster and can elevate up to two practice squad players per week.

Therefore, teams need to name any players on the roster over those 48 as inactives for each NFL game. Here are the NFL inactives for Week 18.
