NFL Inactives for Week 5

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 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.
