Washington Redskins coach Joe Gibbs said he expects quarterback Mark Brunell to start Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles. Brunell sprained his right knee in last week's victory over the New York Giants, but he practiced Friday for the second straight day. "Mark took most of the script and looked good," Gibbs said. "I'm sure that's the way we'll start." Brunell was injured when he was sacked early in the third quarter against the Giants. Patrick Ramsey finished the game and has been preparing to start the Eagles game if Brunell can't play. The Redskins will clinch a playoff spot with a victory. "It's tough for anyone to be on the sidelines, but it would be especially tough now," Brunell said.
