SAN FRANCISCO -- The 49ers will have four wide receivers active for the season opener on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers at Candlestick Park.

Newly acquired wide receivers Jon Baldwin and Chris Harper were listed among the 49ers’ seven inactive players for the opener. Each NFL teams is allowed to suit up only 46 players for games.

Anquan Boldin and Kyle Williams are scheduled to start at the 49ers’ wide receiver spots. Marlon Moore and rookie Quinton Patton are also expected to see extensive active.

Defensive lineman Will Tukuafu is inactive for the game, as the 49ers are going with five defensive linemen. Tony Jerod-Eddie beat out Tukuafu for the right to suit up for the opener.

Running back LaMichael James, who sustained a medial collateral ligament sprain in his left knee, is expected to miss three games. He is among the 49ers' inactive players. The 49ers suited up just two quarterbacks, as Colt McCoy is the backup behind Colin Kaepernick. Rookie B.J. Daniels will not suit up for Sunday's game.

For the Packers, Jerron McMillian will start at safety in place of Morgan Burnett, who is out with a hamstring strain.
