SHARE Eagles CB Sheldon Brown expected to start

Veteran Eagles cornerback Sheldon Brown has not missed a game in his eight-year career, and he’s not going to miss one tonight.

Brown was questionable with a pulled hamstring, and was limited in practice all week, but he’s active for the game and is expected to start. That was good news for Philadelphia.
