Every week we bring you all the inactives from the 1 p.m. ET games in one post, constantly updated with the latest information.

Whitney Mercilus is set to make his Packers debut on Sunday. Mercilus signed with the Packers after being released by the Texans this week and he is in the team’s lineup for Sunday’s game against Washington.

He’ll help fill the void left by Preston Smith. Smith is out with an oblique injury after being listed as questionable on Friday. Za'Darius Smith is on injured reserve and the thin group on the edge led to Mercilus’ signing.
