What does it mean? I have no action over them... Why and How do they appear in the squad?

They are filler players when you have a small squad. You can use them in matches, but nothing else

Aren't they the ones who get promoted and added to the Reserve Team automatically (and randomly)?

And if so will they have the atts that they had as greyed out players?

You cannot use greyed players, they get used automatically for the reserve team matches. I haven't noticed if it is some of them who get promoted so that you can actually use them since it's been some time since i had one promoted. I have an academy and 25 players maximum but i rarely get regens.

They can be used in games (senior and reserve) but they'll never change into normal players and you'll never have any control over them.

How can they be used in senior games when they cannot be controlled? The only thing that comes to mind is the holiday thing which i don't do.

If your senior squad doesn't have a lot of players in it, grey players will appear automatically, so you at least get to play your games.

But you're right, you won't be able to move them from reserves to senior or the other way around.
I once had three grey players in my senior squad which were waaay worse than the grey players in my reserve squad. That was a bit frustrating.

This most often happens during times when the national teams are competing. If you're playing a big club, you'll have like 15+ guys away for international competitions, and to compensate, a few grey guys will appear.
You can also try at the beginning of a game, when you're selling half your squad and trying to sign better guys. When your squad is half-empty, you'll probably see a few grey guys appear as well.

I'm not sure what the threshold is for grey players to start appearing, though. Perhaps one of the more experienced CM0102 players might be able to elaborate.

When you're on your squad selection screen apply the show reserves option as well, then they'll show up like they do in your reserves.

Can you field them as well? That would be amazing. I have to try that!
(Not at work though.)

Yes, that's why I said they can play in games.

On your Squad Selection screen it's actually Filter... Include Reserves....
