NFL Inactives Today: Week 18 Injury Reports With Updates on Trevor Lawrence, Baker Mayfield, Christian Watson, and D’Andre Swift

Who are the Week 18 NFL inactives across the games being played during the 1 p.m., 4 p.m., and Sunday Night Football windows?

As usual, each week of the NFL season has brought more injuries and concerns for teams and fans. Some playoff teams are resting key players with their seeding locked in after last week’s games.

With several players questionable heading into a critical Week 18, all eyes will be on Sunday’s NFL inactives for several reasons.

NFL Inactives for Week 18

Each week, teams may only dress 48 players, with added exceptions for quarterback and offensive line. You will see some list a QB as inactive and designate him as the “third quarterback” or “emergency quarterback,” meaning he can play if things get dire.

Usually, teams will name between three and seven inactives, depending on roster size and practice-squad elevations.
