NFL Inactives Tonight Week 15: Adam Thielen questionable, Darren Waller and Kareem Hunt ruled out

Who are the inactives tonight for Week 15 of the 2021 NFL season? Which players will we not see on the field in the two games?

The reshuffling of Week 15 of the 2021 NFL season has meant we will have double the Monday inactives to keep an eye on. Which players will be listed among the inactives for the four NFL teams playing tonight?

NFL inactives for tonight’s doubleheader

Each NFL team can only dress 48 players for any given game. Therefore, with up to 55 players able to be on a roster on gameday, teams must list any beyond that 48 as part of their inactives.
