(Santa Clara, California-AP) -- San Francisco 49ers starting linebacker Jeff Ulbrich will be out three to six weeks after hyperextending his right knee. The former University of Hawaii player was injured last night during the 49ers' 17-10 exhibition loss to Oakland when he came in late on a tackle.
San Francisco coach Steve Mariucci had feared the injury was more serious. Ulbrich was a third-round pick of the 49ers in 2000.
