SANTA CLARA, Calif. – The Jaguars will be thin and young at receiver Sunday.

Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee, the two most-tenured receivers on the Jaguars' active roster, both will miss Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers at Levi's Stadium.

They were made inactive 90 minutes before kickoff.

Lee will miss with an ankle injury sustained last week in a victory over the Houston Texans. Hurns will miss a sixth consecutive game with an ankle injury sustained in a November victory over the Los Angeles Chargers.

Rookie Dede Westbrook will start in place of Lee and rookie Keelan Cole will start for Hurns for a sixth consecutive game.

The Jaguars' active receivers on Sunday will be Cole, Lee, first-year veteran Jaydon Mickens and third-year veteran Jaelen Strong. The Jaguars promoted Strong from the practice squad Saturday.

The Jaguars' other inactives Sunday:

*Nose tackle Eli Ankou, defensive end Carroll Phillips, offensive guard Chris Reed, offensive tackle Josh Walker and offensive tackle William Poehls.
