San Francisco 49ers wide receivers Marquise Goodwin (family issue) and Pierre Garcon (knee) were ruled out for Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks, head coach Kyle Shanahan announced Friday.

Shanahan told reporters it is up to Goodwin as to what information to make public. On Thursday, Goodwin tweeted:

"LORD, I'm leaning on you HEAVY today, trusting wholeheartedly in your word & the promises you've spoken into my life. I'm asking that you free me of all anxiety or depression today so that i‘m able to sustain a clear vision of what it is you have destined for me. I love you. AMEN."

Goodwin also reportedly met with his teammates on Thursday. This will be his second straight missed game. He has 17 catches for 339 yards and a career-high four touchdown catches in eight games this season.

Garcon has not played since Nov. 1 against Oakland. He has 24 grabs for 286 yards and one score in 2018.

Second-round rookie Dante Pettis and second-year undrafted man Kendrick Bourne will start at receiver.

"It's not the ideal situation you want throughout the year, but it's nice to have some continuity for (quarterback) Nick (Mullens) and for the offense two weeks in a row," Shanahan said on his TV show "49ers Game Plan."

The 49ers also ruled guard Joshua Garnett (thumb) and safety D.J. Reed (heel, chest) out for Sunday.
