Sheldon Brown Injury: Browns CB Expected To Play Vs. Bills

The Cleveland Browns should receive a nice boost to their secondary in Week 3, according to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal, as head coach Pat Shurmur confirmed that veteran cornerback Sheldon Brown will be suiting up for a full game on Sunday against the Bills.

A visibly-injured Brown extended his streak of consecutive games played to 162 in Week 2, but was then removed from the field after one play solely to keep his record intact. While the 0-2 Browns have already been torched through the air by both opponents and still remain without the services of suspended corner Joe Haden, the return of a crafty veteran like Brown should bode well for the team's chances against a Bills offense prone to making mistakes.

Still unlikely to be fully healthy from his shoulder stinger, Brown is expected to enter the day as the team's nickel corner and go from there. Shurmur has already made a point that he's fully prepared to move things around as necessary, but Brown looks to be the most trusted defensive back on the team heading into Week 3.
