JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars again will be without two of their best offensive skill players Sunday.

They will be without one of their best offensive linemen, too.

Jaguars running back Chris Ivory and wide receiver Allen Hurns have been ruled out with hamstring injuries for a second consecutive week, and starting center Brandon Linder has been ruled out with an ankle injury.

All were among seven Jaguars inactives announced an hour and a half before kickoff of the team's 1 p.m. game against the Minnesota Vikings at EverBank Field Sunday.

Other players ruled out for the Jaguars Sunday: quarterback Brandon Allen, running back Denard Robinson, safety Peyton Thompson and offensive lineman Jeremiah Poutasi. Robinson (ankle) and Thompson (ankle) had been ruled out Friday along with Hurns.

Defensive end Jared Odrick (shoulder) and tight end Julius Thomas (back) also were ruled out Friday. They were then placed on injured reserve Saturday with the team activating offensive lineman Luke Bowanko off the Physically Unable to Perform list and signing running back Bronson Hill off the practice squad.

With Robinson and Ivory out, T.J. Yeldon, Corey Grant and Hill are the Jaguars' healthy running backs. Yeldon practiced full this week with an ankle issue that had hampered him the past two weeks.

Marqise Lee is expected to start a second consecutive game for Hurns opposite Allen Robinson and Tyler Shatley is expected to start in place of Linder at center.
