SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) -San Francisco nose tackle Aubrayo Franklin will miss the next four weeks after straining his right calf in the 49ers' loss at Seattle on Monday night.
Franklin, in his first year on the 49ers' defensive line after years as a backup in Baltimore, has 36 tackles as a solid gap-plugger in San Francisco's 3-4 defensive fronts.
Isaac Sopoaga is expected to start in Franklin's spot against the St. Louis Rams on Sunday, while Marques Douglas also will play extensively at the position.
