Airport Express as "Wired" Network

We all know that you can plug an Airport Extreme into a modem and split it to be used with wires or without (wired vs. wireless). It has both capabilities.

But what about the Airport Express as a wireless AND wired network, too.

Let's say you have two Airport Expresses.
Express A has the input from the DSL and Express B is on the other side of the room "extending the network." Thus there is no ethernet plug in it. Thus that slot in Expres 2 is open.

Could you...

Plug an ethernet plug into it and use it as an OUTPUT to a Desktop computer?
