INDIANAPOLIS -- Indianapolis Colts defensive tackle Ricky Jean Francois will miss two to four weeks with a plantar fascia tear.

The injury happened in the third quarter of Sunday's victory over the Tennessee Titans. Jean Francois left Lucas Oil Stadium wearing a walking boot on his left foot.

Fili Moala will start in Jean Francois' spot, with Montori Hughes backing him up.

Colts coach Chuck Pagano also announced Monday that running back Dan Herron needs surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle and will go on injured reserve.
