Heaney is one of four Swans substitutes who will also be free from an injured defender Lewis Melikan (hamstring) and have lost midfielders Dylan Stevens and Ryan Clarke.
Franklin on the 22nd team will be joined by second captain Dane Ramp and rookie Robbie Fox.
Sydney coach John Longmire said Heaney “pinched his ankle” in his win over Geelong last week and did not recover, but the club hoped he would only miss one match.
The Demons made three replacements after losing important defender Adam Tomlinson to a knee injury at the end of the season. Oscar Baker and veteran Nathan Jones are not featured, and Jones is named as an emergency.
Harrison Petty replaces Tomlinson on defense, and James Harms is also invited to his first game from the first round.
Greater West Sydney has been hit again, with key striker Jesse Hogan (calf) being one of four forced misses in Saturday’s meeting with Essendon at the Giants Stadium.
Matt Buntin, Sam Reed and Brent Daniels were eliminated due to injury, while the Giants approached conscript Tanner Brun, Daniel Lloyd and Zach Sproul.
Cancer will once again be headed by veteran Shane Mumford, with Matt Flynn named as emergency.
Essendon dropped veteran David Zaharakis, lone player Nick Brian and versatile Matt Guelfie, all of which were called emergencies.
Adelaide swung her ax ahead of Saturday Night Showdown, preparing to greet Captain Rory Sloan.
The tough midfielder was one of only three players to move over after a serious eye injury to join defenders Luke Brown and Will Hamill.
The Ravens have lost midfield rookie Jackson Haightley, as well as striker Shane Macadam and defenders Andrew MacPherson and Nick Murray.
Port Adelaide will benefit from the return of midfielder Travis Boack, who also pulled Kane Farrell out of the Adelaide Oval.
The authorities let the hapless young man Martin Frederick, who is called a medical emergency, and who is likely to replace Sam Mace and Boyd Woodcock, have passed through.
Collingwood has abandoned inductee Finley McRae to make way for Forty freshman Oliver Henry, who will play his second AFL game in Saturday’s match against North Melbourne.
Callum Brown was also kicked out when brother Tyler returned and no medical substitute Jay Rantall was named on the team last week.
McRae is among the emergencies with conscript Reef McInnes, who was overlooked this week after a strong performance at the VFL.
North Melbourne have made two replacements, with midfielder Luke Davis-Uniake returning and last week’s medically indicated substitute Connor Menadieu climbed to 22nd place.
Conscript Will Phillips was expelled along with former magpie Atu Bosenavulaga, both of which were labeled as emergencies.
Gold Coast has named the unchanged team for the third week in a row ahead of its clash with St Kilda at Metricon Stadium, and medical reserve Alex Sexton has been named an emergency again last week.
The Saints also awarded uniforms after a major victory over Hawthorne in the seventh round, naming unchanged 22 points with last week’s replacement by Mason Wood amid emergencies.
Defender Tom Highmore received no recall after a major match at VFL level, with Jack Loney and Ben Long, other contenders for the medical substitute role.
The GWS Giants beat Adelaide easily last week, but there is no doubt they found some form last week.
Essendon probably beat Carlton last week and played pretty well.
These two teams are really hard to put side by side. I’m going home with the giants, but beware of the bombers.
