Sheldon Brown, Lito Sheppard are co-starters

The Eagles have posted their current depth chart on Click here to see it.

Here are some things I noticed:

1. Sheldon Brown and Lito Sheppard are listed as co-starters at right cornerback. Brown is listed first (Brown/Sheppard), so maybe that means he's really the starter and they are just trying to make Sheppard feel better.

2. DeSean Jackson is not listed at WR. Jackson was unable to crack the top six at wide receiver. No, that doesn't mean that Michael Gasperson will make the team ahead of him, but it does mean we should expect more from Jackson in the return game than as a wideout.

3. Shawn Andrews is still listed at starting right gaurd. Max Jean-Gilles is the back-up on paper only at this point. Andrews keeps his starting job out of respect for the situation he is going through, although he will have to earn it when he comes back.

4. Correll Buckhalter is the second string running back. This is a shocker, I thought for sure that Lorenzo Booker would be considered the back-up, although Buckhalter is still more of a "change-of-pace back" when compared to Brian Westbrook.

5. Chris Clemons is listed third at defensive end. Perhaps the dehydration incident has set him back? I thought he was brought in to be a bigger part of the defense.
